TSA testing new, faster screening program
December 24, 2012 (WLS) -- Holiday travel may soon be more pleasant as the TSA has a new program to speed travelers through security checkpoints.
This is a pilot program where most travelers would not have to remove shoes, belts and coats, and wouldn't have to take laptops and liquids out of carry-on bags.
To qualify, passengers would have to get the approval of a bomb sniffing dog and a TSA agent trained to detect suspicious activity.
The program is being tested in Indianapolis and Tampa.
