The wait time at security at McCarran International and other airports is getting even longer.

That's because of fewer Transportation Security Administration agents, tighter budgets, new checkpoint procedures and more travelers.

The problem is expected to get worse during summer -- the peak travel season.

To prepare, the TSA is working to assign more than 760 by June and using its sniffing dogs to reduce wait times.
