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.
