The TSA, which is regularly under fire for using such techniques as pat-downs and body scanners, is currently moving toward a “risk-based” system that would consider a passenger’s background information in his or her screening.
Cravaack said the TSA was testing a program that would use Department of Defense "Common Access Card" to quickly identify - and clear for flights - military personnel.
Cravaack attributed the program to the popularity of bill, which has been dubbed the "Risk-Based Security Screening for Members of the Armed Forces Act" (H.R. 1801).
