Description

KATU 's On Your Side Investigators face off against the Transportation Security Administration to protect the public's right to know whether security cameras safeguarding our nation's mass transit systems actually work. The three month battle - fought in court and on camera, from Portland to Washington, DC - challenged transit officials' blanket claim that the TSA had classified all camera maintenance and inspection records as 'SSI' - Sensitive Security Information, and thus exempt from public record and FOI requests. KATU's reporting also rewrote the rules for which documents can and can't be classified as SSI - resulting in a win for public safety, accountability and government transparency - not just in Portland, but for the entire country.
