ABSTRACT
The article considers the reaction of the airline industry to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) notice of proposed rulemaking that would establish biometric exit procedures at all U.S airports and seaports of departure. The proposed rule would require commercial air carriers and cruise line owners and operators to collect and transmit international visitors' biometric information to DHS within 24 hours of leaving the U.S. Airline groups say the federal government should be responsible for homeland security and should pay the bill.
