In our post, Pennsylvania Legislature Joins the TSA Resistance Movement, we told you about Pennsylvania’s House Resolution 16 and House Bill 852.  Both of these items were offered by Representative Tallman in resistance to the TSA’s Unconstitutional airport screening measures.  These pieces of legislation are currently referred to the State Government Committee.

House Resolution 49, Pennsylvania’s House State Sovereignty Resolution which was introduced by Representative Swanger, is also referred to the State Government Committee.

We have been advised that the State Government Committee will be meeting with regards to the TSA legislation on this Wednesday, March 30, from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm.

Please contact the state government committee members to get the TSA legislation, HR16 and HB852, out of committee and onto the floor of the house for a vote.  Tell them that we do not consent to unclothed, digital imaging of Pennsylvania’s sons and daughters.  We do not consent to submit Pennsylvania’s sons and daughters to improper sexual contact as a condition for travel.  We, the People of Pennsylvania, demand to be treated according to the Constitution and with a presumption of innocence.

Sending this message especially important if you are a constituent of one of the committee members.  And while you’re at it, you can ask them to support State Sovereignty Resolution, HR49, too!  Here are the members who need to be contacted before Wednesday.
