Texas fails to pass measure to criminalise airport security searches

30-Jun-2011 10:45 AM

US’ Texas House did not pass a measure to criminalise airport security searches without reasonable suspicion (AP, 30-Jun-2011). The bill did not get a final vote because lawmakers failed to suspend the constitutional rule that a bill be voted on twice over two separate days. The bill would have made it a crime for TSA airport screeners to intentionally touch someone “inappropriately” without “reasonable suspicion”.
