Aviation and Transportation Security Act of 2001 Contains Voice Stress Analysis Provision

Section 109(a)(7) of this legislation states that the Under Secretary of Transportation for Security may: Provide for the use of voice stress analysis, biometric, or other technologies to prevent a person who might pose a danger to air safety or security from boarding the aircraft of an air carrier or foreign air carrier in air transportation or intrastate air transportation.

Voice stress analysis “tests,” like polygraph “tests,” are junk science and should by no means be relied upon for the purpose contemplated by this legislation.
