In an interview with POLITICO yesterday, the head of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) David Pekoske said he expects TSA and Customs and Border Protection to merge their trusted traveler programs "within the relatively near term." According to the article, "Pekoske said that he and CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan had met several times to discuss collaborating on airport security and a possible merger of Global Entry and PreCheck — a move that the agencies say would be more efficient for both them and travelers." ASTA supported this concept when it first surfaced late last year, saying "A single program allowing travelers to get through the airport screening process quickly would be a welcome development and we urge DHS to move this concept forward."
