Texas HB80, David Simpson’s Travel Freedom Act, would nullify unconstitutional TSA overreach in Texas.  It had a public hearing in the State Affairs Committee on 04/10/2013.  This bill will soon be up for a vote. Your help through phone calls and emails will move it on towards the full state house.

HB80 may have 45 co-sponsors but this bill has not moved fast through the legislative process. Please contact committee members to get this bill scheduled for a vote.

1. Contact the Committee Chairman. Thank him for the hearing and politely urge him to schedule a vote – and to vote YES on HB80.

2. Contact all the other Committee members. Strongly, but respectfully, let each know that you want nothing less than a YES vote on HB80.
