Salt Lake City, UT – Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz got an amendment through the U-S House of Representatives last week that prohibits the use of whole-body imaging systems as a primary screening device for airline passengers. The imaging systems can look right through a person's clothes to reveal any weapons or contraband they might be carrying. But the fact that they also reveal a naked silhouette offends some people, including Congressman Chaffetz. Roya Fargam has been looking into the systems and she has this report.
