Alternate Title: Risk-Based Security: Assessing the Path Forward for TSA Pre-Check [Trademarked], Hearing Before the Committee on Homeland Security, Subcommittee on Transportation, U.S. House of Representatives, One Hundred Fourteenth Congress, First Session, March 25, 2015

This is a testimony compilation from the March 25, 2015 hearing "Risk-Based Security: Assessing the Path Forward for TSA [Transportation Security Agency] Pre-Check™," held before the House Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Subcommittee Chairman John Katko: "Over the last three years, TSA has adopted a more common sense, risk-based approach to passenger screening through the implementation of its Pre-Check™ program. Since its inception, TSA Pre-Check™ has garnered a positive response from both passengers and transportation industry stakeholders for moving away from a one-size-fits-all approach to aviation security. TSA Pre-Check™ has fundamentally changed the way Americans think about passenger screening in a post-9/11 world, and I believe it should continue expanding. However, in order to do so, this program must grow and mature in a manner that saves taxpayer dollars while also improving the experience of the traveling public and reducing security risks to aviation. Growth in Pre-Check™ should not be at the expense of any of these core objectives, and I am concerned that several initiatives related to expansion of TSA Pre-Check™ do not meet these criteria." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of: John Roth, Kenneth Fletcher, and Jennifer Grover.
