TSA Speeding Up Screening at More Airports

The Transportation Security Administration is expanding its Pre-check speedier screening program to 60 more airports, in addition to 40 where it was already available.

The new airports should have the expedited checkpoint lanes -- where participants are allowed to keep on their belts and shoes, and leave their laptops in their bags -- by the end of the year, the agency announced Wednesday.

"Expanding TSA Pre-check to more locations enables many more passengers across the country to experience expedited screening," says TSA Administrator John Pistole.
