Legislation introduced to protect privacy rights at airport security

by Sara M. Langston with the blog faculty Source: KFBB.com While Americans are preparing for one of the busiest travel weeks of the year, Senator Jon Tester is introducing legislation to protect privacy rights at airport security.
