The federal government this year will expand its expedited screening program known as PreCheck to 28 more airports. The program is now in place at seven airports. It allows certain passengers enrolled in the government's "trusted traveler" program to avoid removing their shoes, belts and coats while passing through security. "Good, thoughtful, sensible security by its very nature facilitates lawful travel and legitimate commerce," said Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. "The expansion of TSA PreCheck to the nation's busiest airports will increase our security capabilities and expedite the screening process for travelers we consider our trusted partners."
