The TSA Modernization Act would advance the deployment of new technologies at security checkpoints, mitigate risks to public areas at airports, and reduce delays in air travel. The bill would also give the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) additional tools to expand TSA PreCheck, a valuable trusted traveler program that increases security at the checkpoint while providing for expedited screening.

The following statement may be attributed to Michael W. McCormick, GBTA executive director and COO.

“The TSA Modernization Act is a step in the right direction. When it comes to business travel, we need to adopt policies that support our business travelers and help the industry grow. The bill would give TSA increased flexibility to mitigate future threats and safely facilitate travel. Specifically, the bill would provide TSA with new tools to securely expand PreCheck and drive enrollment, a key goal for the travel community.”
