June 10, 2008. In a notice published in the Federal Register (73 FR 
30416) on May 27, 2008, CPB announced that the program is now known as 
Global Entry and that the starting date had been moved to June 6, 2008.

(JFK); the George Bush Intercontinental Airport, Houston, Texas (IAH); 
and the Washington Dulles International Airport, Sterling, Virginia 
(IAD).
    The Global Entry pilot program allows for the expedited clearance

stated that the pilot would begin operation at a limited number of 
additional airports to be announced by a future notice published in the 
Federal Register. This notice announces these additional airports and 
the dates on which operation is expected to begin.
    All aspects of the program as described in the April 11 notice are
