MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - It might not take as long to get through security at Wisconsin's largest airport.
The federal government's "Pre-Check" program for frequent fliers began Tuesday at Milwaukee's Mitchell International.
Eligible passengers will have their own lane where they do not have to remove their belts and shoes -- and they don't have to keep their laptops encased at the checkpoints. Airlines are inviting their frequent-flyer members to be in the program.
The Transportation Security Administration says it will let officers focus on other passengers who may a risk to airline safety. Officials say it should also speed up the regular security lines.
By the end of the year, the TSA says it will offer its pre-check program at 100 airports throughout the country.
