Friday, May 14, 2004
The full Senate approved SB 837, NRA-backed Right To Carry reciprocity legislation which requires Louisiana to recognize permits from states which, in turn, recognize Louisiana permits. The bill now moves to the House for consideration. We`ll keep you posted on its committee referral and hearing schedule!
Also, the House Natural Resources Committee will consider SB 2, the right to hunt, fish and trap constitutional amendment, on Thursday, May 20, at 9:30 a.m. in Committee Room 4 of the capitol in Baton Rouge. Please contact committee members and urge them to support SB 2; contact information is available at www.legis.state.la.us
