More than a year after Congress passed a stimulus bill containing $25 million for airport scanners, not one of the 150 machines has been installed, according to a report in Politico. After an ordering process that took seven months, manufacturer Rapiscan delivered more than 100 scanners to the TSA, though they have yet to be deployed in the field. "TSA is in the process of accepting delivery of the initial 150 units purchased," an agency spokesman says. "TSA is staging for their deployment and anticipates complete delivery to the agency by April."
