Feds rolling out new airport security plan
WASHINGTON (KGO) -- The government is rolling out its new beefed-up airport security plan in response to the failed Christmas Day terror attack.
Many Spring Break travelers may be surprised under the new changes. People may be facing a full body scan, a "swab" for bomb residue, a pat-down, or all three procedures.
The Obama administration is committing tens of millions of dollars to deploy more state-of-the-art screening equipment. Security lines are expected to grow as the extra measures are rolled out and the travel season picks up.
