Comprehensive list of OFFICIAL documents re TSA screening policies

"Official documents" includes anything in the USC, CFR, or Federal Register, and any formal memos issued by TSA. It also includes any SOPs, directives, or similar documents, regardless of TSA's desire for those to be public.

This specifically excludes any other part of TSA's website, such as press releases or guides (since they have no legal status).

Must be about screening of passengers, carry-on luggage, or checked luggage. (E.g. excludes TWIC, SIDA, merchants, etc.)

Most important items in each category have a * in front.

Laws

* 49 USC 44902(a) (Refusal to transport passengers and property - mandatory refusal, search)

Regulations

* 49 CFR 172.101 (Hazardous Materials Table) (FAA)

Chollie, here's the reason why you weren't allowed to take your nitroglycerin pills:

Other items, such as syringes included in diabetes-related equipment, and nitroglycerine pills or spray for medical purposes, conceivably could be used as weapons, but are permitted as a medical necessity for passengers with a legitimate need.
You apparently didn't have a legitimate need for them. Isn't it grand to know that the TSA has declared that your health is so good that you don't need this life-saving medication!

ETA: Or maybe it was because you weren't carrying nitroglycerine pills.

@petaluma1: please link your sources for quotes. There's too much text to know what you were looking at.

If it's a federalregister.gov source, hover the paragraph and click the little bookmark icon to get a direct link to that paragraph.
