(CBS SF / Worthy News)-- The TSA is studying plans to give luggage different levels of screening depending on the passenger.
Currently, all checked baggage is screened in a one-size fits all process, but that could change if the agency goes through with what it calls 'risk-based' screening.
The TSA is embarking on a five year, $2 billion security strategic capability plan, which will study ways to match checked bags with the security profile of the passengers who checked them.
