TSA comment period open until June 24

Jump to last reply

The TSA has finally acceded to a court order (resulting from a law suit brought by EPIC - http://epic.org ) and opened a comment period on the naked body scan machines (and anything else related to their protocols you want to mention). It has taken years for TSA to do this - the Court of Appeals ruled in July 2011. The TSA has also avoided publicizing the opportunity to comment, first putting up a post about it on its blog, and then taking it down.

To comment you should go to:

http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=TSA-2013-0004

For EPIC's suggestions and background: http://epic.org/TSAcomment/EPICrec.pdf

For an interesting discussion on government oversight of travelers, and on the opportunity to comment:
