An announcement regarding the re-organization within the Department of Homeland Security is approaching and FederalNewsRadio has learned there could be a significant change in one of the department's most troubled agencies.

Sources at DHS tell FederalNewsRadio the Transportation Security Agency will be replaced with a new organization likely to be called the Aviation Security Agency.

It is believed that the new organization will have a more limited focus which will handle only aviation and air security issues. TSA currently has responsibility for those areas and maritime, land, and some hazmat issues. But sources say it is likely those functions would be handled by a new smaller group within DHS.
