The Federal Register contained a notice today by the TSA on a new information collection requirement related to a program that has not previously disclosed, based on a quick Google search of its name:
The Rice-Chertoff Initiative (RCI) Department of Homeland Security Traveler Redress Inquiry Program (DHS TRIP) was developed as a voluntary program by DHS to provide a one-stop mechanism for individuals to request redress who believe they have been: (1) Denied or delayed boarding; (2) denied or delayed entry into or departure from the United States at a port of entry; or (3) identified for additional (secondary) screening at our Nation’s transportation hubs, including airports, seaports, train stations and land borders. The DHS TRIP office will be located at, and managed by, TSA. In order for individuals to request redress, they are asked to provide identifying information, as well as details of the travel experience.
The one-year anniversary of the launch of the Rice-Chertoff Initiative is later this month; this program is the result of Chertoff’s promise in that speech to establish a “government-wide traveler screening redress process before the end of this year .”
