Governor Davis Wants CHP Officers To Become State Air Marshalls
Governor Davis says he hopes to get approval within 30 days to allow CHP officers to serve as sky marshals on flights within the state.
Davis made his remarks after meeting with federal officials in Washington Monday morning.
The governor also wants federal approval to expand the duties of National Guard troops at California airports to include random searches of checked baggage. Currently, they are limited to checking carry-on bags at security checkpoints.
