Texas - House Passes Several Bills

Saturday, May 10, 2003

This week, the House passed a number of NRA-supported bills: HB 498 by Rep. Carl Isett (R-84) reducing Concealed Handgun License (CHL) renewal fees for senior citizens; HB 1704 by Rep. Larry Taylor (R-24) allowing new Texas residents to immediately apply for a CHL and allowing non-residents to keep their license if their home state passes a Right to Carry law; HB 2086 by Rep. Robert Talton (R-144) lifting the ban on carrying by permittees on LCRA property; and HB 3477 by Rep. Jack Stick (R-50), transferring authority from DPS to the Texas Attorney General`s office for negotiating CHL reciprocal agreements with other states. Also this week, the Senate Criminal Justice Committee approved SB 1406 by Sen. Craig Estes (R-30), the Senate companion bill to HB 3477. Please begin calling your State Senators and urge them to support all of these NRA-backed bills. (As this Akert went to print, the NRA-supported House Committee Substitute for SB 501, by Sen. Ken Armbrister (D-18) & Rep. Suzanna Hupp (R-54), was pending on the House calendar for consideration. This bill would close a loophole in the criminal trespass law that cities and counties are using to post signs banning carry permit holders from public buildings. We`ll keep you posted!)
