Simpson Files Bill Challenging Enhanced Pat-Downs

Posted/updated on: November 15, 2012 at 11:20 am

Simpson says, “I’m hopeful that Texas will lead the way in reining in this abuse.” The last time such a bill passed, it was pulled when the U.S. attorney general threatened to cancel flights to Texas.
