Customs Border Patrol and the Transportation Security Administration are working together to accelerate screening for some travelers, writes Marc Tobias in Forbes. Tobias notes that members of CBP's Global Entry, Nexus or Sentri Trusted Traveler programs may soon be able to access certain dedicated screening lanes at airports. For a $15 fee, travelers receive a Sentri RFID card with a hologram, micro-printing and photograph. Tobias received his card last week, but his attempt to use it at an airport was not successful. "When I asked TSA supervisors at our local airport whether they would accept the card as ID, they said they were unaware of the program and asked if they could make a copy of my card!" he writes.
