This bill would require the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to consult with the Aviation Security Advisory Committee regarding proposed changes to the prohibited items list. The prohibited items list is a list of objects that could be dangerous if brought onto a plane as carry-on or checked luggage.
Existing law would be modified to ensure that once a member of the Aviation Security Advisory Committee has served two years, they could continue to serve until a successor is in place.
Within 120 days of this bill’s enactment, the TSA would have to provide a status report on the activities of the Transportation Security Oversight Board (TSOB). This report could include changes to the TSOB in light of the establishment of the Aviation Security Advisory Committee.
