Rep. Rice Introduces Bill to Improve Airport Security Screening of Transgender Travelers

U.S. Representative Kathleen Rice (NY-04) introduced a bill yesterday to protect the dignity and privacy of transgender and other travelers at airport security screening checkpoints. The Screening with Dignity Act of 2020 would require the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to develop new procedures and officer training protocols on how to appropriately and respectfully screen transgender passengers and passengers with religious headwear and other articles of faith.
