Rep. Mike McCaul, R-Texas, said he wants to hold a hearing on how much the Rapiscan full-body scanners cost the Transportation Security Administration. The TSA pulled the scanners from U.S. airports last week, but the agency said they were cost-effective. "Over 130 million passengers have been effectively screened by Rapiscan backscatter AIT at a cost of thirty cents per passenger screened," said a TSA spokesman.
