Austin activism goes to the legislature

Texas has proposed legislation along the lines of what New Hampshire is proposing. Rather than holding individual TSO's responsible for sexual assault, it is holding the airports liable for such breaches of human rights. JH Huebert at LRC gives the backstory, which we've been following along here as well. It would be great to see some of this legislation pass and for more states to follow suit.

Of course, as my last post shows, as long as security is in the hands of the federal government, we will not be safe from the abuses. They will just move onto trains, buses, sporting events, concerts, and more.
