Loose Change Adds Up at Airports

Everyone knows when you are going through airport security everything must come out of your pockets, but it turns out most people are not putting everything back in their pockets.

Bloomberg Businessweek reports that more than $500,000 worth of loose change was left in security tubs over the last fiscal year. Last year the Transportation Safety Administration dumped loose change into an “aviation security fund” that was spent on airport security and on signs translated into foreign languages for international travelers. Some members of congress feel the money should go to the military, and one congressman recently put forth a bill that would mean the money collected would be used for rest and relaxation stations in airports for military officers and their families.

What do you think it should be used for?
