Screening With Dignity Act of 2016

This bill directs the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to:

  • develop procedures to appropriately screen self-identified transgender air passengers, and
  • conduct in-person training of all Transportation Security Administration Officers on such procedures.

The FAA shall separately study and report on:

  • the cost and feasibility of retrofitting advanced image technology screening equipment to distinguish between foreign objects and human body parts; and
  • the disparate impact that such technology has on self-identified transgender passengers as opposed to the general public, including an examination of instances since 2010 in which such passengers were required to undergo a secondary screening after alarming the advanced imaging technology.
