Program to speed up border, airport security crossings accepting applicants this week

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. - This week, events in Vermont are trying to get people to sign up for the federal NEXUS program.

The effort is a joint one between U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Canada Border Services Agency.

Cardholders will be able to cross the border with Canada faster  as well as move faster through security at many airports across the country.

The effort has been supported by members of Vermont's congressional delegation, including by Represenative Peter Welch, who says he plans to sign up on Monday.

You do have to complete an online application ahead of time and there is a fee.
