U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10) this week joined in support of the Risk-Based Security Screening for Members of the Armed Forces Act (H.R.1801). This measure would require the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to develop a separate screening process for military personnel flying on civilian aircraft. H.R.1801 passed the U.S. House and now heads to the U.S. Senate for consideration.
 
Miller said: “Whether our soldiers are returning home or they are heading to a new assignment, this measure will allow our military men and women an overall expedited airport screening process. These brave men and women have dedicated themselves to serving our nation at home and abroad and I am proud to have supported this bipartisan legislation making it easier for our service men and women to travel. I urge the U.S. Senate to quickly take up and pass this measure.”
 
H.R. 1801 directs TSA to develop and implement a plan to provide expedited screening through our nation’s airports for any member of the U.S. Armed Forces (and any accompanying family member), when that individual presents documentation indicating official orders while traveling in uniform.
 
Like Miller, we also urge the Senate to pass this measure.
