Today, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst issued the following statement regarding the passage of Senate Bill 29, the TSA pat-down bill:
"We all want our skies to be safe and we all want to fight terrorism. But airport security must focus on stopping terrorists, not harassing innocent travelers. With the passage of SB 29, the Texas Legislature is not only telling the TSA to change their policies − we're telling the Obama Administration we will not be intimidated and we will vigorously defend our Constitutional rights."
