ABSTRACT

Future of TSA's Registered Traveler Program: Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Economic Security, Infrastructure, Protection, and Cybersecurity of the Committee on Homeland Security, House of Representatives, One Hundred Ninth Congress, First Session, November 3, 2005   [open pdf - 856KB]

From the opening statement of Daniel Lungren: "The subcommittee is meeting today to continue its oversight of the Registered Traveler program and to assess what measures are needed to move it beyond its pilot phase to a truly nationwide system. I would like to welcome everybody to today's hearing. We have already met twice this year on the prospect of a Registered Traveler, or, as I prefer to call it, a trusted traveler program, being rolled out at our nation's airport. Some may wonder why a third hearing is necessary. Well, it is my belief that the successful implementation of an interoperable program for voluntary enrollment of frequent fliers will not only help focus TSA resources towards those passengers that perhaps pose the greatest risk, we will also reduce the burden and hassle often associated with air travel." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Daniel E. Lungren, Peter T. King, Bennie G. Thompson, Peter A. DeFazio, Norman D. Dicks, Sheila Jackson-Lee, Mike Rogers, Kip Hawley, Charles Barclay, Steven Brill, Marc Rotenberg, Lawrence J. Zmuda, Alisa Arnold, EDS U.S. Government Solutions, Chris Witkowski.
