Fans from around the country will fly into Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport for the festivities. MSP is expecting almost 70,000 passengers to fly out Monday after the big game, which would be a record travel day for the airport.

That's about double an average day, and it amounts to roughly 3,000 security screenings per hour.

The Transportation Security Adminstration says not to worry, they have their resources in place. More than 100 TSA officers are being brought in from out of state

Every security lane will be open, totaling more than 30 at the two terminals combined.

There will also be more than 20 explosive-detection K-9s, which can help the crowds move a little faster.

If you have to fly out of MSP after the Super Bowl, the TSA recommends you are in the security line a minimum of two hours before your flight.

SEXUAL HARASSMENT REPORT

The state Management and Budget office recently released a report on how the state handles sexual harassment. Gov. Mark Dayton requested the department review policies and procedures after allegations of sexual harassment surfaced at the Capitol.

The report found that while the state's executive branch has a strong policy prohibiting sexual harassment, more work could be done to improve the state's workplace culture.

Minnesota Management and Budget Commissioner Myron Frans says "Drawing specific conclusions from the number of complaints within a workplace does not always provide a clear picture of the scope of sexual harassment prevention."

The review focuses solely on the executive branch.

The Minnesota Legislature is working on its own set of new policies and procedures.
