"On June 4, 2009, the House passed an amendment offered by Representatives Chaffetz (R-UT) and Shea-Porter (D-NH) to the Transportation Security Administration Authorization Act (H.R. 2200) by a vote of 310-118. The Chaffetz-Shea-Porter Amendment prohibits the use of whole-body imaging technology, which produces graphic and detailed images of aircraft passengers' bodies, as the sole or primary method of screening. Rather, it permits such imaging only when metal detection or other methods of screening demonstrate cause. The ACLU supported this amendment because of the Fourth Amendment and other privacy protections it affords aircraft passengers."
