By: Harper-Brown H.C.R. No. 5
         WHEREAS, The citizens of this state and nation are protected
  from unreasonable search and seizure by the Fourth Amendment to the
  United States Constitution; and
         WHEREAS, Actions by agents of the Transportation Security
  Administration have subjected members of the public, before they
  may board airplanes or access certain public buildings, to
  intrusive pat downs that extend beyond the bounds of normal
  propriety; and
         WHEREAS, Although TSA has acknowledged its overreaching
  policy by making a change related to screening children, much more
  progress needs to be made; and
         WHEREAS, While recognizing that the security of this nation
  is paramount, and that all reasonable measures must be taken to
  protect the public, treating all travelers, including senior
  citizens and disabled individuals, as serious threats in no way
  contributes to this nation's safety; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the 82nd Legislature of the State of Texas,
  1st Called Session, hereby respectfully urge the Congress of the
  United States to take appropriate action to ensure acceptable
  treatment of the public by personnel of the Transportation Security
  Administration; and, be it further
         RESOLVED, That the Texas secretary of state forward official
  copies of this resolution to the president of the United States, to
  the speaker of the house of representatives and the president of the
  senate of the United States Congress, to the administrator of the
  Transportation Security Administration, and to all the members of
  the Texas delegation to the congress with the request that this
  resolution be officially entered in the Congressional Record as a
  memorial to the Congress of the United States of America.
