Marking today's 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, advocacy groups are celebrating greater access to public transportation -- and pointing out perceived shortcomings. The CEO of the Amputee Coalition of America cites a recent poll showing 75% of amputees report "unsatisfactory experiences" with airport security screenings, despite official TSA policies designed to ensure consistency and dignity.

We are confident there will be significant improvements for amputee travelers."
