The National Business Travel Association (NBTA) announced its opposition to a legislative proposal that would hinder the further development of the Registered Traveler (RT) program in the United States to facilitate business travel and enhance air travel security. The amendment, filed by Representative Vic Snyder (D-AR) as the full U.S. House of Representatives considers the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) reauthorization bill, would remove important language added during the House Homeland Security Committee's consideration of the TSA bill earlier this month. Section 234 in H.R. 2200 as amended by Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee Chairwoman Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX) and Subcommittee Member Daniel Lungren (R-CA) will enhance RT's risk management and traveler facilitation potential. Specifically, the provision would require TSA to consider how RT can be integrated into "risk-based aviation security operations," to reinstate security threat assessments and background checks for RT participants, and to review screening protocols "to realize the full potential of the Registered Traveler Program." NBTA urges the House Committee on Rules not to schedule the amendment for a vote and further urges opposition to the amendment should it be considered on the House floor.
