The majority of county commissioners in Florida's Broward County voted to ask the Transportation Security Administration to do more to assure passengers that full-body scanners are safe. The commissioners specifically want the TSA to examine the studies that led the European Union to ban the scanners, explain its position on the studies and ban the scanners if they are not safe. The TSA maintains that the scanners are safe. "TSA would not use technology that could jeopardize the health of passengers or our employees," said Tim Lewis, TSA's local federal security director.
