Two months after lawmakers asked for the records to be released, the TSA still hasn’t put them forward.

TSA spokesman Kristin Lee says that the agency is still trying to ensure that the reports don’t contain any “sensitive security or privacy-protected information” and that she expects they will be released “within the next few weeks.”

The chairman of a House oversight committee on homeland defense calls the delays “inexcusable.”

“The public has a right to know, and there isn’t something so sensitive that requires holding it back,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah. Chaffetz has sponsored legislation to limit the use of full-body scans.
