This AP Article was in the Buffalo News Today

I don't like it. Lines are going to be chaotic. Its possibly a very beneficial system for FF's though.

U.S. pushes forward on passenger risk database
Monday, January 12, 2004 Posted: 12:00 PM EST (1700 GMT)

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- The U.S. government is moving forward on a computerized system containing background information on air travelers despite resistance from airlines and privacy advocates, The Washington Post reported Monday.

The government will require airlines and air travel booking companies to let officials see passenger records possibly as soon as next month, the newspaper said. Passengers through U.S. airports would be scored with a number and a color that ranks their perceived threat to the aircraft they are traveling on, the paper said.

A separate program is due to be launched this year that would give frequent fliers quicker passage through security checks if they volunteer personal information to the government, the newspaper said.

Privacy and consumer advocates say the programs could be discriminatory because some passengers would be screened more carefully than others.

The two programs would supplement the fingerprinting and photographing of travelers arriving in the United States that was launched last week.
