Two New York lawmakers have called for a passenger advocate at airports to immediately act on complaints by passengers over security screenings.
U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer and state Sen. Michael Gianaris of Queens want the Transportation Security Administration to create the position at all airports.
The proposal to be released Sunday was prompted by an elderly woman’s recent claims that she was strip searched by security officials at Kennedy Airport, which the TSA denies, saying it doesn’t conduct strip searches. Others have since made similar claims.
The TSA said Saturday that it is planning its own advocacy service.
