Senate Adopts FAA Amendment to Prevent Body Scan Image Distribution

An amendment offered by Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE) to the FAA Air Transportation Modernization and Safety Improvement Act (S. 223) has been adopted by a vote of 98-0. A unanimous consent agreement required 60 votes for adoption.

The amendment would make it a felony crime to “photograph, record, or distribute a body scan image taken by a body scan imaging machine – at either an airport or any federal building – without express authorization to do so either by law or regulation,” according to a press release.
