"Texas lawmakers are expected to vote on a bill Wednesday that would effectively outlaw many routine airport searches by the Transportation Security Administration. If it passes, a TSA screener who touches the 'anus, sexual organs, or breasts' of a passenger without probable cause could face jail time — a prospect that has the Obama administration threatening to sue the Lone Star state and even cancel flights. ... Some of the bill's most enthusiastic backers view it as a key first step towards an even bigger goal: The establishment of an independent Republic of Texas." (06/29/11)
