    The Transportation Security Administration is expanding its Pre-check speedier screening program to 60 more airports, in addition to 40 where it was already available.

    The new airports should have the expedited checkpoint lanes - where participants are allowed to keep on their belts and shoes, and leave their laptops in their bags - by the end of the year, the agency announced Wednesday.

    "Expanding TSA Pre-check to more locations enables many more passengers across the country to experience expedited screening," says TSA Administrator John Pistole.
    More than 15 million passengers have gone through the expedited screening since it began in October 2011. But 1.8 million travelers fly each day, so Pistole is trying to expand participation in Pre-check.

    Excited I'll be able to use it at LIT while visiting my parents/family. Security lines usually aren't bad when I fly out of there but I'd still rather have it for the times they are.

    This was literally my only complaint about PreCheck. There's a good amount on the list that I've gone through in the past without PreCheck. Happy to see the expansion.

    Wow, shocked that COS is on the list. Lines are seldom very long anyway. But I'll take it! :)
