TSA Offers Security Line Alternative

Spokane airline travelers tired of long security lines now have a local office to enroll in a TSA program for expedited screening. The Transportation Security Administration has opened an office in Spokane Valley where travelers can go to show proof of identity and to be fingerprinted for a background check. If they pass, they’ll be issued a Known Traveler Number, which gives them access to TSA’s PreCheck lines at 118 airports around the country, including Spokane. The credentialing costs $85 and is good for five years/Mike Prager, SR. More here.
