Legislation Details

116th Congress

To require the Transportation Security Administration to implement training for frontline Administration personnel regarding the screening of pregnant women and families with young children at passenger screening checkpoints, and for other purposes.

Sponsor: Rep. Debbie Lesko — R — AZ

Implements several changes with the goal of making it easier for pregnant women to fly in America’s airports. The bill would mandate the TSA hold trainings for security personnel, including offering opt-out options for pregnant women not to use the body scanners. The TSA would also have to make “passenger support specialists” available to any pregnant woman upon request, and to produce a study on the possibility of creating special screening lanes specifically for pregnant women and their families.
