TSA Tweaks Procedures

In an effort to make passage through the airport security-theater gauntlet a tad faster, the Transportation Security Administration is easing scrutiny of kids and seniors


The Transportation Security Administration has changed its focus at security checkpoints.

TSA spokesman Kawika Riley visited the North Central West Virginia Airport in Bridgeport Tuesday.

The TSA has tried to make checkpoints faster for what Riley called "low-risk groups" like children and the elderly. Frequent fliers and other pre-certified passengers will also be able to skip security checkpoint practices like taking off your shoes and removing liquid items.
