Earlier this year, Congress directed that the Transportation Security Administration release records designated as Sensitive Security Information to individuals, preparing for court action, who demonstrate a substantial need and who have attempted to obtain equivalent information by other means in preparation for trial. TSA responded on Nov. 1 by filing notice of a new rule requiring those requesters to be fingerprinted and subject to background checks before gaining access to the information. (11/6/06)
