New TSA screening procedures for seniors begin Monday

Starting Monday, some airports are changing screening procedures for the elderly.

It's a pilot program that will allow people over the age of 75 to keep on their shoes, and light outerwear.

Four airports are participating in the tests: Chicago, Denver, Orlando, and Portland.

The TSA says this new procedure will allow officers to better focus on passengers who may be more likely to pose a threat, and speed up the screening process.
