The No-Hassle Flying Act, introduced by Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), would allow the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to determine whether checked baggage on a flight originating at an airport outside the United States must be re-screened in the United States before it can continue on any additional flights if the baggage has already been screened in the foreign airport.
Sens. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) and John Thune (R-S.D.) co-sponsored the bill, which passed by unanimous consent.
The bill now head to the House for legislative action.
