Yesterday the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced plans to expand its precheck program – Pre✓™ – to an additional 60 airports. The program is currently available at 40 airports nationwide. Those 40 will be getting additional precheck lanes with the recently announced expansion. The changes are slated to happen sometime before the end of this year.

Twitter had plenty to say in response to the TSA announcement. The overall reaction was positive:

Of course, airports jumped in to spread the good news:

Some took issue with the $85 fee the TSA charges travelers who want to participate in the precheck program:

Do you currently participate in the precheck program? If your airport is one of the 60 on the expansion list, will you take advantage of faster check ins with the program?

  • Only in America

    Only in America would the government use YOUR tax money on useless searches and then offer to take YOUR money to avoid a part of those useless searches.

    Then again, the government sold Americans on a group of 20 year-olds with box cutters hijacking planes and subsequently, defeating our trillion dollar national defense system. Heck, the government even sold the American people on the fact that there was nothing suspicious about fighters not being launched to intercept the plane heading for the Pentagon even though a major air force base exists only 20 miles away from the Pentagon that was specifically built to protect the Pentagon and White House. Nah, nothing suspicious about that. Heck, it is only the Pentagon after all.

    Americans have become mindless sheep.
