GBTA elogia el proyecto de ley que pone fin a la inclusión gestionada de PreCheck

Bill Introduced Day After GBTA Members Visit DC, Call on Lawmakers to End Practice

Alexandria, VA (May 1, 2015) – Reps. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), John Katko (R-NY) and Kathleen Rice (D-NY) introduced a bill that would end managed inclusion for PreCheck, a practice where Transportation Security Administration agents allow travelers to use PreCheck lanes when they have not been properly vetted. The statement below can be attributed to Michael W. McCormick, Executive Director and COO of the Global Business Travel Association.

“The Global Business Travel Association applauds Reps. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), John Katko (R-NY) and Kathleen Rice (D-NY) for sponsoring legislation that would further secure our aviation system by ending the practice of managed inclusion in PreCheck. PreCheck and other risk-based programs are essential for those business travelers who travel the most, as delays getting through airport security cost them time and money, but in order for the program to be truly secure, all passengers must go through the same vetting process.

It’s time to put an end to this practice, which confers all the benefits of PreCheck without requiring any of the burdens. Managed inclusion passengers are not required to submit personal information for TSA vetting or pay a fee.

I am especially pleased to see this legislation come just one day after nearly 100 GBTA members and business travel professionals traveled to Washington, D.C., to call on their lawmakers to end managed inclusion. Their voices were heard.”
