TSA head visits Atlanta's airport; talks screening changes

- Efficiency and effectiveness are what the newest administrator of the Transportation Safety Administration said are driving all decisions as far as screenings in the nation's airports.

Administrator David Pekoske visited Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on Thursday.

Pekoske got to see first-hand one of the newest screening additions to the world's busiest airport, the automated screening lanes, otherwise known as the ASLs.

Pekoske said there will be a change coming to airport screenings.

Officials will soon ask passengers to take out any electronic device that's bigger than a cell phone from their bags to declutter carry-ons for more efficient screenings.
