It`s time to push for NRA-ILA`s top priority bills—House Bill 878 & Senate Bill 501—to be scheduled for votes as soon as possible. These bills close a loophole in the state`s criminal trespass law that cities and counties are using to ban access by concealed handgun license holders (CHLs) to public buildings. The House has spent two weeks debating tort reform and could spend another two weeks on its appropriations bill. And now the Senate is expected to take up controversial insurance reform proposals next week. Time is running short!
Please call your State Representative and urge him to work to bring HB 878 up for a floor vote before the House appropriations bill is debated. Please also call your State Senator and urge him to support bringing SB 501 up for consideration by the full Senate as soon as possible.
