Business Week: TSA to Test Private Vendor to Help Speed U.S. Airport Checks Consumers who aren’t part of an airline frequent-flier program would be able to pay a vendor a fee to undergo a security check based on criteria set by the agency, Pistole said in an interview. The company would notify TSA who gets approved, and applicants who pass a second review by the agency would be admitted to the PreCheck program, he said. Hmmm ... Is this "fee" less than the cost of the apps (probably free ) needed to modify & reprint your boarding pass? “Taxpayers aren’t paying, footing the bill on this, and that’s the beauty of it,” Pistole said in the interview in New Orleans, where he addressed the American Bar Association Aviation Law Forum. “It’s really recognizing the strength of private industry to provide a solution that helps a government function.” Screw you, Pissy. Why should taxpayers pay a penny to excercise their fundamental rights? We already wasting enough $B ever year on your inept agency.
