Written consent for traffic stop searches clears the House

Scott brings the good news that a requirement of written consent for a search at a traffic is one step closer to reality. As Rep. Pena reports, there was an effort to kill it at the third reading, but it had a big enough cushion to survive a few defections. It's still possible that Gov. Perry could veto it, but for now things look good.

Does it apply to the ATF?

No, but last I'd heard the BATF isn't in the habit of pulling over motorists.
