    The Transportation Security Administration recently announced an expansion of its PreCheck screening system to Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport for eligible travelers.
    Lorie Dankers, TSA public affairs manager said the program should be implemented in Anchorage by early December.

    "People who are in PreCheck have a different screening experience. You don't have to remove your shoes. You can leave your liquids, gels and aerosols still in the smaller quantity in your bag," she said. "You can leave your laptop in your bag and you can leave a light jacket or sweater on."
    The program is part of the administrations effort to expedite the airport security screening process. It's also a way for TSA to move towards a risk-based, intelligence-driven security method, according to the agency's website.
