House Passes Bill Enabling One-Stop Screening for Americans Returning from Abroad

A bill approved by the House of Representatives could lay the groundwork for a day when Americans flying home from an international destination won't have to go through rescreening before continuing from their airport of entry to a connecting destination.

The One-Stop Pilot Program Act (H.R. 4094) won House approval by a voice vote on Sept. 29 and has now been received in the Senate, where it will be heard by the transportation committee.

The bill would authorize TSA, in coordination with Customs and Border Protection, to conduct the trial at up to six foreign airports.
