AUSTIN, TX -- Texas Senator John Cornyn has introduced legislation that would allow local governments to provide security detail for its Prosecutors and judges.

The "Line of Duty Act" would also extend the rights of officials at state and local levels to carry weapons into all federal facilities.

Certain crimes would also become a federal offense like killing a federal judge, law enforcement officer, or safety officer.
