TSA Making Changes For Electronics At Checkpoints

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Changes are coming to the security checkpoint at Tulsa International Airport.

Starting next week, the Transportation Security Administration will require travelers to place all electronics larger than a cell phone in bins for X-Ray screening.

That means all passengers in standard screening lanes will be asked to remove devices like e-readers and tablets from carry-on bags at the checkpoint.

"It gives our officers a better look at what could possibly be inside of those items," said Carrie Harmon with TSA.

The changes do not apply to TSA pre-check lanes.
