Senator Dan Patrick addresses TSA Anti-Groping Bill

In regards to a Texas measure that would bar Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents from invasive inspections, Sen. Dan Patrick (R-Dist. 7) released the following statement on Friday afternoon:

"The TSA anti-groping bill is important legislation that sends an important message to the federal government. This is evidenced by that fact that it has more than 100 coauthors in the House and enough votes to pass in the Senate. Even before passage, this legislation has already yielded results in that the TSA recently changed their pat down policies on children.

"I am greatly disappointed that negotiations on this bill have broken down so badly in the House at this critical point in the special session. If the House can resolve their differences, there is still time if they can pass it to the Senate before Monday."
