(DENVER, Colo.) Greetings, good morning and welcome back to another Tuesday edition of the Denver Daily Round-Up.

It's another cold and cloudy day in Denver and the city's first snowfall of flurries is beginning to fall. The forecast high today is not much, being 46°F with a forecast low of 36°F.

Today, Denver International Airport's TSA process will soon see changes, a Denver civil rights attorney weighs in on the homeless encampment sweeps controversy, a dozen Denver museums are planning to let visitors in for free Saturday evening and the Centennial State's COVID hospitalizations reach a new record.

Without wasting anytime, here is a closer look at just a few of the most important and local stories in and around Denver for this Tuesday that you should be aware of:

1. Changes to TSA process coming to Denver International Airport

Travelers coming from and to Denver International Airport will witness alterations to TSA security lanes beginning on Tuesday.

DIA officials have stated that they have improved passenger flow with the help of TSA after days of very long lines throughout the airport. In addition to improved flow, PreCheck services will be shorted at the south security checkpoint and the airport is encouraging passengers to use the North Security Checkpoint.

2. Why Denver homeless encampment ‘clean-ups’ became so controversial

Denver civil rights attorney Andy McNulty is claiming that the legal battle regarding how Denver conducts clean-ups near homeless camps will in time come to an end.

McNulty has also stated that annually paying contractors and city workers hundreds of thousands of dollars to clean up homeless areas is a waste of city dollars. He is currently involved in a lawsuit against the city and also worked in a 2016 case in federal court where plaintiffs claimed that the city pushed homeless people around to make room for economic development.
