Military Could Get Expedited Airport Screening

Ad Feedback

Members of the military could soon be getting through airport security faster.
    
New legislation passed by the House Tuesday would allow military travelers who are in uniform to receive "expedited" screening.

"An expedited, risk-based TSA screening process is the least we can do for our men and women in uniform and their families who sacrifice so much," said Rep. Chip Cravaack, R-Minn., the bill's chief sponsor.
    
Besides being in uniform, the traveler would also have to have their military orders present.
    
If signed into law, the new system could be implemented as early as June 2012.
    
The Transportation Security Administration is also working to implement an intelligence-driven trusted traveler program for civilians.
