TSA pilot program in which machines will scan IDs debuts at Bush Intercontinental Airport

HOUSTON

Usually humans handle that part of airport security, but the TSA is testing out a new scanning system. The machines can recognize all valid ID, ranging from driver's licenses to passports.

The TSA hopes the scanners will make the checking-in process more efficient.

The review of the program is expected to last several months.
