Stop the TSA from Abusing Our Families

Make Calls Today in Support of H.B. 1937

Texas State Representative David Simpson (R-Longview) has introduced a bill in the Texas House to stop the TSA from groping our wives and daughters in our state’s commercial airports.

H.B. 1937 clarifies that sexual assault is sexual assault — no matter who performs it. Just because the TSA is a government bureaucracy does not mean that they can touch our intimate areas without probable cause. Not only does it violate our dignity, but it also violates the intent of the 4th Amendment in the U.S. Bill of Rights and Section 9 of the Texas Bill of Rights.

Action Alert! - Take Action Today on H.B. 1937

The Criminal Jurisprudence Committee will hold a public hearing for H.B. 1937 on Tuesday, March 22 — that’s tomorrow — and they need to hear from you today!

We need as many calls and faxes to flow into the Capitol as possible to encourage the members of this committee to support traveler dignity and stop the TSA’s abusive practices.

Please take time to call or fax each of the committee members and urge them to vote H.B. 1937 out of committee:

Show Your Support in Person: Attend Tomorrow’s Hearing in Austin

If you would like to show your support of this bill in person, we would encourage you to attend tomorrow’s hearing at the Texas Capitol. E-mail for directions and more details.
