A program to move some passengers through security more quickly is coming to O'Hare Airport next week.

The pre-check program is scheduled to launch on Tuesday inside Terminal 3.

It allows passengers to pay a onetime fee of $100 for a background check.

In most cases those passengers are then allowed to go through security without removing their belts or shoes.

The program was tested at several airports last year and is now being expanded to 28 others.
