The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure issued a news release stating that, on April 14, it will conduct an oversight hearing regarding biometric transportation credential development.  The Committee is concerned that aircraft pilot licenses still do not have resistance to tampering, alteration, and counterfeiting, as well as a photograph of the pilot and a biometric identifier required by law and that there are no approved readers for the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) for maritime workers.  (4/13/11).
