(Salt Lake City-AP) -- The federal agency that handles airport security expects to cut the jobs of 150 workers in Salt Lake City during the next few months.

The cuts in Salt Lake City are part of six-thousand layoffs nationwide for the Transportation Security Agency.

T-S-A officials say security is NOT being lessened. And waiting times for passengers isn't expected to go up.

T-S-A administrator James M. Loy says it's just a matter of using the agency's resources more efficiently and dealing with budget realities.

The cuts will take place during the next 120 days.
