DENVER -- If you're traveling this summer, you'll have the option of moving through security lines at Denver International Airport a little faster -- for a fee.

Travelers can come to the Transportation Security Administration's new application center to sign up for its precheck program.

The program lets you wear your shoes, belt and a light jacket while going through airport security. Other perks include leaving your laptop and small containers of liquids and gels in your carry-on bag. The cost is $85.

You must visit a center to enroll so officials can verify your identity. You can provide fingerprints and show documentation to confirm citizenship or immigration status.

The center is located in the Jeppsen Terminal on the southeast corner of Level 5 near the south TSA checkpoint.

    How are you saving any time to mention, if you still have to stand in line behind those who do not have a special pass? And you’re going to pay more for that privilege?

    You know what else saves time at an airport? Letting illegal aliens board with no ID other than a catch and release letter. All this while Grandma has to remove her Depends to prove she’s not an underwear bomber.

    I’ve been doing this for a couple of months and it’s great if you travel a lot. They have a separate line and you don’t have to remove your shoes, coat, belt or laptop, and you only have to got through a metal detector. It’s like flying in the 80’s again! And so far, it’s save a lot of time for me.
