Udall requests post-Thanksgiving hearing on travel tales

By The Staff

U.S. Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., is asking Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller to convene a hearing following the Thanksgiving holiday to focus on airline travelers’ experiences with the screening measures recently implemented by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
In his letter to the chairman, Udall — a member of the committee — notes that while the perspectives of both DHS Secretary Napolitano and TSA Administrator Pistole have been heard in recent hearings, the committee has yet to examine the accounts of individuals who endure both body image screenings and pat-down procedures when traveling.
 “In today’s post-9/11 world we must continually strive to strike the proper balance of preserving airline security and respecting the privacy and dignity of travelers,” Udall said.
“That includes hearing the standpoint of the traveling public who undergo these procedures and there is no better time to do so than on the heels of one of the busiest travel holidays.”
