Regardless of your home state, call the chairpersons to ask whether recent TSA abuses are on the agenda for the oversight hearing. Ask to speak with the staffer responsible for dealing with issues related to the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation.

Here’s a list of committee members, their homepages, and phone numbers. If one of these people is your Senator, please also phone them, either at the number below or look online to find their nearest local office; or you can visit in person. A constituent who knows a senator’s committee assignments and addresses issues for the agenda for a scheduled hearing gives him/herself an educated and powerful voice.

If none of these people is your senator, contact the committee chairs. Also contact your own senators and representative. They still need to hear your opinion, it’s just that they won’t be at this hearing.
