    Modesto Bee: Sacramento International Airport gets preliminary OK to use private security screeners

    Federal anti-terrorism officials announced this morning they have granted Sacramento International Airport preliminary permission to employ private screeners at security checkpoints in place of federal Transportation Security Administration employees.

    The move, if finalized, would make Sacramento the third-largest U.S. airport to switch to private contractors for security screening. San Francisco International, Kansas City and 14 smaller airports currently employ non-government employees at security checkpoints.

    Sacramento is the third airport this year to receive permission to participate in the federal "Screening Partnership Program."
