ORLANDO, Fla. — Leaders at Orlando International Airport heard proposals about major security changes on Wednesday.Controversial security measures enacted by the Transportation Security Administration raised concerns with airport officials across the United States.Rep. John Mica recommended airports replace the TSA with private security firms after complaints were lodged about full-body scanners and pat-down procedures.”I think it’s a bit much, the security measures they have, but we didn’t have to go through it, so it was OK,” passenger Brenda Mays said.But some passengers said they believe the increased security measures are worth it.”I think it’s worthy security, so I don’t think we have to change that,” passenger Horace Cunningham said.The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority will hold a discussion about the security issue on Wednesday.Regardless of the decision, every private airport security worker must be trained and supervised by the TSA
