Key lawmaker wants to limit full-body screening at airports – NextGov

A key lawmaker wants to prohibit the Transportation Security Administration from using full-body scanners for primary screening at airports, a congressional staff member said Thursday.

An aide to Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said the new chairman of the House Oversight Subcommittee on National Security, Homeland Defense and Foreign Operations, which oversees TSA, plans to reintroduce legislation similar to a 2010 House-passed bill that stalled in the Senate.
