On Thursday, Tranasportation Security Administration chief John Pistole visited Tampa International Airport in Florida to discuss the nation's security strategies. The TSA is using programs such as PreCheck to move to a risk-based flier assessment instead of viewing every flier as a risk. "We are moving away from the 'one-size-fits-all' outlook on screening airline passengers to a risk-based security concept," Pistole said. "That began with age-based screening modifications for passengers 12 and younger and 75 and older who do not have to remove their belt, shoes or a light jacket."
