Texas state law would have made invasive TSA patdowns a felony

The bill awaited a state Senate vote after already passing the House 138-0. Then, a U.S. attorney sent top Texas lawmakers a warning that the feds would seek an emergency stay and in the meantime would “cancel any flights for which it could not ensure safety of passengers and crew.”
