Voice your opinion on full body scanners

The Transportation Security Administration opened up a comment period online where you can say whether you like or don't like the full body scanners.

In response to a lawsuit, a Washington DC circuit court ordered the TSA give the public a chance to comment on the scanners.

The agency did not do this when they first launched the scanning program.

Complaints are pouring in with many people saying the scanners are an invasion of privacy and that it could expose them to unsafe levels of radiation.

Some relief is coming to these passengers. A new federal law will have TSA removing all scanners that generate naked pictures to look for hidden weapons, by the summer.

You can submit your comment till June 24. To add your comments, visit www.regulations.gov and type in the case code TSA-2013-0004.
