The new rule will be implemented in March 2007. According to Laura Moscowitz of the National Employment Law Project, "Thanks to strong advocacy by the ALF-CIO Transportation Trades Department, among others, the TSA took welfare fraud and passing bad checks off the list of disqualifying offenses after realizing that 'these crimes generally do not have a nexus to terrorism and therefore should not be disqualifying.' The final rule also includes a better appeals process, which also applies to hazmat drivers and air cargo workers.

This full text of the Final Rule in the Federal Register (Vol 72, Number 17, January 25, 2007, Rules & Regulations) includes the full list of disqualifying offenses and waiver and appeal process.
