New Jersey proposes legislation to restrict TSA pat-downs and scanners

New Jersey State Senator Mike Doherty (R-23) introduced three pieces of legislation that will limit the power of the TSA in New Jersey airports. The first bill makes pat-downs of kids 16-years-old and under a criminal offense. The second prohibits the use of body-scanning machines to screen passengers or airline crews. The third seems somewhat redundant, but basically defines images retained from body scanners as pornographic imagery illegally obtained. Perhaps the point of the third piece is to ensure that all images obtained in the past are destroyed. Regardless, this is a positive step toward stopping the insanity.

Good job, Senator Doherty and other co-sponsors!
