Texas mulls anti-TSA pat-down bill

Texas lawmakers have proposed a bill that bans TSA officers from intentionally touching travelers’ genital regions. A similar bill previously failed to pass after feds threatened to shut down the state’s airports if TSA would face such restrictions.

We need more States like Texas. The TSA is an over-bloated Federal Agency that was a knee-jerck reaction to 9/11. They have YET to foil ANY terrorist threats in their decade+ of groping America.

Go od luck Texas, let's abolish the TSA completely...

Texas prosecutors already have authority to prosecute for sexual battery; they just lack the will.

Let the Feds try to shut down the airports. We can simply idle the refineries and ration the east coast gas and oil.

I am for abolishing the TSA.

It’s about time that State legislatures reign in this corrupt agency, clearly no one in Washington cares enough about travelers to do anything.

TSA says they keep America safe but can TSA explain how any of this is keeping us safe when TSA screeners haven’t caught or even identified one terrorist after 11 years and over $80 billion in funding.

Do es anyone really believe that humiliating a wounded Marine by removing his prosthetic legs in front of other passengers is making anyone safer?

Maybe TSA can explain how stealing our property is going to prevent another 9/11.

Don't need new laws. Constitution (4th amendment) already grants people protection. TSA is illegal.

Then tell the fed to get out of your airport. We need more states passing this and kicking the fed out.
