Air Travel Shoes-Off Rule to Ease in Future, Napolitano Says

Air travelers won’t have to take their shoes off during security screenings in the future, said U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

“One of the first things you will see over time is the ability to keep your shoes on,” Napolitano said today at a forum hosted by Politico Playbook in Washington. She didn’t specify when the change would take place.
