Texas lawmakers may reconsider a bill to outlaw controversial airport pat-downs, the sponsor of legislation that was shelved recently said this week.
A Texas state Rep says that the Lt. Gov. asked Gov. Rick Perry to include the measure in a special session of the Texas legislature. Earlier, the governor asked lawmakers to withdraw the bill when federal officials threatened to cancel flights to Texas if it passed.
But he has since had a change of heart, according to the state rep. This law would make it a misdemeanor for TSA agents would have been to pat down travelers who did not have probable cause for suspicion. The penalty would be a $4,000 fine and one year in jail.
If it is approved, it would be the first state law restricting TSA's security techniques.
