ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the plan of U.S. Transportation Security Administrator (TSA) John Pistole to begin taking a look as early 2011 at a risk-based approach to passenger screening at airport security checkpoints. His plan would entail things like passengers voluntarily giving additional information so that more informed background checks could be done. He has also created several working groups to review this approach to Trusted Traveler screening.
