Airport Security Options Act H.R. 3038


On September 23rd 2011, Congressman Kenny Marchant (R-TX) introduced H.R. 3038 the Airport Security Options Act. Currently, the TSA has applied a nationwide “blanket” freeze to airport applications seeking to opt-out of TSA in favor of certified private security.

Congressman Marchant seeks to have the practices returned to its original state where airports could choose to hire their own private security rather than the TSA. ... Source: truthaboutbills.org

A coalition of nearly 175 U.S. Representatives and Senators has filed an amicus brief with the Court urging that Texas HB2 be upheld. “This Texas law takes critical steps to protect women’s health and defend the right to life,” said U.S. Congressman Marchant (TX-24), a co-signer of the congressional brief supporting Texas HB2. “As oral arguments are heard, I hope the Supreme Court will give deference to the will of the people of Texas and their elected legislators.

Marchant Calls for Action to Make U.S. Tax Code Simpler, More Competitive
The House Committee on Ways and Means held a hearing on Wednesday to examine the global tax environment and pro-growth reforms to make the U.S. tax code more competitive. During the hearing, U.S. Congressman Kenny Marchant (TX-24) highlighted the urgent need to simplify the tax code, lower rates, and ease the growing strain on American businesses. Marchant issued the following statement upon the conclusion of the hearing: “America’s global competitors have taken great strides to make their tax policies more conducive to job creation and long-term economic growth.
