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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

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.
