Cravaack Bill Would Speed Military Personnel At Airports

Military personnel would get through airport security checks faster under a U.S. Rep. Chip Cravaack bill that passed its first committee hurdle today.

“This legislation would require TSA (Transportation Security Administration) to develop a separate screening process for military personnel flying on civilian aircraft,” the northeastern Minnesota Republican congressman said. “It is past due for so many of our nation’s heroes serving our great country.”

Specifically, the bill orders the TSA to implement a quicker screening process for military personnel and their families within six months.
