The House Civil and Commercial Law Committee will be accepting proponent testimony on HB 303 (preemption legislation) on Wednesday, February 20, at 9:30 a.m. in Room 114 Statehouse. HB 303 will ensure only the state legislature can pass laws regulating firearms, thus prohibiting municipalities from passing their own restrictions. In addition, the revised sub-committee version of House Bill 274, the NRA-backed Right to Carry bill, will be presented to the committee. Please make plans to attend and address the committee on HB 303.
