Texas bigger than the Federal government? Unfortunately not. While many good things have come from Texas, it seems they are being grabbed by the bootstraps this time in regards to H.R. 1937. This piece of legislation provision “would thus criminalize searches that are required under federal regulations in order to ensure the safety of the American public.” Because as we are being led to believe molestation and groping works.
I believe no matter how the Feds or attorneys spin this, Texas is in a no win situation. Even if the bill is passed “the federal government would likely seek an emergency stay of the statute. Unless or until such a stay were granted, TSA would likely be required to cancel any flight or series of flights for which it could not ensure the safety of passengers and cr ew.”
I will continue to pull for the great state of Texas, but I don’t believe state leaders could possibly continue down this road if it were going to jeopardize thousands of people who nt only work for the airlines and airports, minus the thousands in the “make-work” program but all the revenue that would be lost because of infrastructure that supports air travel.

**update** This bill is dead, it seems the strong arming by the Department of Justice the above mentioned letter had a hand in how this played out in the state of Texas. Too bad some senators back down in voting for this legislation. I guess a government for the people, by the people is something that has been lost long ago.
