  • evaluate the need for the TSA to update and revise procedures for such screening;
  • assess whether the TSA effectively tracks passenger complaints related to such screening to monitor trends and identify inconsistencies;
  • evaluate the TSA's communications and information sharing practices for passengers, air carriers, and airports relating to screening protocols for such screening;
  • evaluate the TSA's policies regarding the screening of passengers with nursing products; and
  • make recommendations for improving the TSA's overall screening practices relating to such screening.
