Simpson Files Bill Challenging Enhanced Pat-Downs

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

AUSTIN — Legislation filed in Austin by an East Texan would make it illegal for TSA agents to perform the so-called “enhanced pat-downs.” Under the bill filed by State Representative David Simpson of Longview, TSA agents who perform such actions could be charged with a misdemeanor crime. 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.
