MEMPHIS (AP) – U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen says Memphis International Airport has been chosen to participate in the Transportation Security Administration's expedited security screening program.

In a statement released Thursday, Cohen said the so-called "pre-check" initiative will enable travelers who pose no security risk the opportunity to move through the screening process more quickly at Memphis' airport.

The program allows select passengers to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt. It also allows them to keep their laptop in its case and keep their liquids and gels bag in a carry-on.

Cohen says security personnel will then have more time to screen passengers who do not qualify for the expedited process.

Four other airports, including Nashville International Airport, have also been added to the program, bringing the nationwide total to 40.
