A Big Change Could Be Coming To TSA PreCheck And Members Are Thrilled
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) might be implementing a big change to its PreCheck program.
Following years of member complaints, the agency could prohibit non-PreCheck members from entering the accelerated security lines. PreCheck is a program that allows travelers to be pre-screened for security risks, allowing them to move through security at airports more quickly.
Currently, non-PreCheck passengers are occasionally siphoned into PreCheck lines if they are deemed low-risk, even if they have not registered and paid for membership to the program.
Now, a bill called ” PreCheck Is PreCheck Act of 2018,” has been approved by the House of Representatives and will be considered by the Senate. The bill would prevent non-members from accessing the exclusive PreCheck lines.
If the bill is passed, it would be implemented within a year.
