TSA must ask permission before patting down children, bill decrees
A law proposed by Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R- Utah) would ban the TSA from performing the controversial "pat-down" procedure on small children without parental consent, the Washington Post reports.
According to Chaffetz' proposal, security screeners would have to obtain consent from parents before the procedure. For children traveling alone (unaccompanied minors), a representative of the airline would need to be present.
The new proposal comes on the heels of a controversial video in which a 6-year-old Kentucky girl was patted down in New Orleans.
