Gov. Perry Signs Bill That Will Correct Texas Right To Carry!

Monday, June 23, 2003

This week, Governor Rick Perry (R) signed into law HB 1704 by Rep. Larry Taylor (R-Friendswood) and Sen. Kyle Janek (R-Houston). HB 1704 allows new residents of Texas to apply for a Concealed Handgun License (CHL) earlier than currently provided by law. It also corrects a technical flaw in the law that forces Texas DPS to confiscate valid Texas licenses held by non-residents if their home state passes a Right To Carry law. The Governor has until June 22 to act on three other NRA-supported measures on his desk -- we`ll keep you posted!
