Business Journal: Security Plan Axed
Sacramento International Airport is scrapping plans that would allow some to bypass security lines.

In Orlando, frequent travelers can gain entry to an express security line – if they pay an annual fee, get a background clearance, and meet other standards. Officials at Sacramento International announced months ago that their airport was going to become the 2nd in the U.S. to have this program, run by a company called Verified. However, airport officials determined through their website that there’s little interest in it here … and prospects are reluctant to pay an annual member fee of $70 or more, which the company says is needed to cover costs. Airport officials now say they won’t launch the program here … but may give it another look in the future.
