The federal agency has until June 21 to respond to the airport's application to replace TSA screeners with a private security firm.
Its top pick is Covenant Aviation, which has offices in Casselberry.
Some passengers support the idea of getting rid of the TSA.
"I think it's great. I think private sector business can get into safety, they're going to do a lot better than our government will," said passenger Brian Krider.
Covenant Aviation said the current 100 TSA employees working at the airport would be offered a job to stay.
