EDISON - Several New Jersey lawmakers held a press conference today in Trenton to speak out against new airport screening measures.
At the press conference, the legislators announced the introduction of a resolution urging Congress to review the new Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screening procedures and the reports of passenger abuse occurring at our nation's airports.
The move comes after Newark Liberty International Airport joined other airports nationwide in implementing full body scanners.
Travel group Flyersrights.org is asking its 30,000 members to forego the scans and also insist that any pat-downs be done in a private room with a witness present.
Yesterday, the TSA released a statement telling passengers that body scans and pat-downs make flying safer.
