Legislators are comfortable to give up some freedoms in sake of safety.

This is Sofia Chaava from Jefferson City.

Missouri legislators are willing to give up some freedoms for security.

FAA's decision to implement significant changes in national and international air travel seems to be acceptable for most of Missouri legislators.

Senator John Russell says he expects drastic changes in Missouri air travel and hopes that the extra security measures will not affect the state's economy.

Representative Chuck Graham says, the state of Missouri has to put more emphasis on security, including air travel.

Contents: Graham: we will have to sacrifice some freedom, but security comes first, and we have to deal with the changes.

Some of the legislators say they may cut down their in-state air travel to avoid spending long hours at airport security checkpoints.
