Texas Special Session Ends Without Passage of Anti TSA Groping Bill txcap3

The Texas legislature has failed to enact a law that would prevent the TSA from molesting travelers at airports around the state. A second proposed law died today on the final day of a special session despite support from Texas citizens and rallies held at the capitol.

The 30 day special session ended at 12:32 PM after the House adjourned. House members initially approved a Senate passed anti-molestation bill but it ultimately fell short of 120 votes needed. The final vote was 96-26.

On June 24, Texas House Speaker Joe Straus called a watered-down bill a “publicity stunt.” Straus said he had not received any guidance from Governor Rick Perry on the bill. “The only thing I’ve seen from the governor was on YouTube,” Straus told The Texas Tribune.

Nationally syndicated radio talk show host Alex Jones called for a second special session to keep the bill on the table.

“Dozens of supporters converged inside the Capitol on Monday to denounce changes in the legislation that they say severely weakened the bill,” The Star-Telegram reported today.

The feds applied extra pressure on Texas to make sure any legislation died.

On May 25, we reported on a Department of Justice threat to cancel airline flights to and from Texas, in addition to underhanded lobbying by TSA representatives, that killed efforts in the state to pass HB 1937. The bill would have made invasive pat downs by TSA agents a felony.
