Government Relaxes Airport Security

The government is relaxing some of its security measures at airports. Passengers will now be allowed to carry their drinks through the metal detectors, if they're in a paper or Styrofoam cup. Baggage screeners also won't be required to ask you if your luggage has been with you all the time.

The Department of Transportation says it made the changes to make security checks a little easier for passengers.
