Pistole at the the expansion moves TSA "closer to our goal of delivering the most effective and efficient screening by recognizing that most passengers do not pose a threat to security.

“We are pleased to expand this important effort, in collaboration with our airline and airport partners, as we move away from a one-size-fits-all approach to a more intelligence-driven, risk-based transportation security system,” Pistole said.

TSA said that the Pre-Check program, which was being tested at airports Dallas, Tex., Minneapolis, Minn., Miami, Fla., Los Angeles, Calif., Detroit, Las Vegas and Atlanta, Ga., has been used by 336,000 airport passengers since it began last year.
