The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) has joined a coalition of other travel industry organizations in support of the TSA Modernization Act

The organizations have sent a letter to the Senate Leadership urging support for the bill, which they say will advance the deployment of new technologies at security checkpoints, mitigate risks to public areas at airports, and reduce delays in air travel. The bill would also give the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) tools to expand the TSA PreCheck trusted traveler program.

“The TSA Modernization Act is a step in the right direction,” said Michael W. McCormick, GBTA executive director and COO, in a written release. “When it comes to business travel, we need to adopt policies that support our business travelers and help the industry grow. The bill would give TSA increased flexibility to mitigate future threats and safely facilitate travel. Specifically, the bill would provide TSA with new tools to securely expand PreCheck and drive enrollment, a key goal for the travel community.”
