WASHINGTON - U.S. Senate Democrats are set to unveil a range of proposals this week to tighten domestic security in the wake of the mass shooting in California that killed 14 people and injured 21.

One part of the plan  attempts to make airports safe by beefing up Transportation Security Administration operations. Democratic Senator Bill Nelson has been pushing a bill to improve screenings of TSA employees.

Overall, the package would put Democrats out in front politically on an issue that is moving to center stage in Congress since the San Bernardino shootings.
