Cravaack Screening Bill Signed by the President

The Risk-Based Security Screening for Members of the Armed Forces Act, was signed into law by President Barack Obama. Sponsored by U.S. Representative Chip Cravaack (MN-8), the legislation requires the Transportation Security Administration to develop a separate screening process for military personnel flying on civilian aircraft.

“This is terrific news for our troops. An expedited, risk-based TSA screening process is the least we can do for our men and women in uniform and their families who sacrifice so much. It’s a privilege to see this bill pass through Congress and signed into law,” said Rep. Cravaack.

The legislation, endorsed by the U.S. Travel Association, moves toward a risk-based, intelligence-driven security screening system.
