Hawaii Senate Passes Legislation To Curb TSA
Push continues for other States to introduce “Traveler’s Bill of Rights”
March 21, 2012
Hawaii Senators this week passed a resolution for a “Traveler’s Bill of Rights”, aimed at making the TSA more accountable and putting a stop to over reach and abuses.
Minority Leader Sam Slom, R-Hawaii, authored the legislation based on Congressman Ron Paul’s American Traveler Dignity Act, at the federal level.
Much like Paul’s bill, the resolution declares that no employee of the federal agency is immune from the law when it comes to pat-downs and the use of potentially harmful radiation scanners on Americans.
Other specific issues include constitutional rights, invasion of privacy and civil rights, child protection and fiscal issues.
