Need help,TSA screening,Written authority?

I have been trying to find the actual language that even gives the TSA the right to implement these screening measures.The only one I could find, a security directive, expired in 2009 and was temporary implementation.

No bills,No codes,No current directives in writing,Nothing? could this all be based on a rumor of written law and authority?Fines and imprisonment?under what code?

If any of you folks could find the time to help research this with me, it could be huge if none is found.

Crickett,I may have found a flaw in this

H.R. 2200: Transportation Security Administration Authorization Act

Section 215 -
Directs the Assistant Secretary to ensure that whole-body imaging technology is used for the screening of passengers only in accordance with specified requirements. Prohibits the use of whole-body imaging technology as the sole or primary method of screening aircraft passengers. Allows its use only if another method of screening, such as metal detection, demonstrates cause for preventing a passenger from boarding an aircraft. Requires that passengers: (1) be provided information on the operation of such technology and specified related matters, including privacy policies and the right to request a pat-down search; and (2) be offered such a pat-down search in lieu of such screening. Prohibits the storage, transfer, sharing, or copying in any form of an image of a passenger generated by whole-body imaging technology after a boarding determination is made.

I picked this apart and found this:

"Allows its use only if another method of screening, such as metal detection, demonstrates cause for preventing a passenger from boarding an aircraft."

is this saying that the scanners cannot be used if the passenger passes through a Metal detector cleanly?I also found no references to fines or imprisonment?

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Thanks Crickett

I just went to the TSA site,"To date, we have received over 100 responses to our post regarding TSA's legal authority to conduct security screening at airports. ..."

The page said "Over quota" and was locked up.
