Transportation Security Administ ration chief John Pistole will face another committee of lawmakers as the agency recovers from the latest firestorm about its airport security procedures. Pistole will appear before the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee to update lawmakers on TSA’s current procedures, including its new Pre- Check known-traveler program and its behavior detection efforts. Pistole recently delivered a similar update before the Senate H o m e l a n d S e c u r i t y a n d Governmental Affairs Committee during a hearing called to examine aviation security a decade after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He said Pre-Check has been getting rave reviews so far at aiports where it is being tested, including Boston’s Logan Airport and Detroit’s Metro International Airport for passengers on Delta and American Airlines.
