Texas Members: Contact the Senate Criminal Justice Committee!

Friday, May 6, 2005

This week, the Senate Criminal Justice Committee reported out HB 225 by Representative Joe Driver (R-Garland) and Senator Bob Deuell (R-Greenville).  HB 225 extends the term of a renewed Concealed Handgun License (CHL) from 4 to 5 years.  The bill now moves to the Senate floor for consideration, where anti-gun Senator Rodney Ellis (D-Houston) is expected to try and amend several anti-gun provisions onto the bill.  Please contact your Senators and urge them to support HB 225 and to OPPOSE SENATOR ELLIS` amendments to the bill. 

Also, the Senate Criminal Justice Committee will consider HB 823 by Representative Terry Keel (R-Austin) and Senator Juan Hinojosa (D-McAllen) on Tuesday, May 10, at 1:30 p.m. or upon Senate adjournment in Room E1.016 of the State Capitol in Austin.  HB 823 takes important steps towards clarifying that law-abiding Texans may carry a handgun for protection in their vehicles without a CHL.  Please contact the committee members listed below and urge them to support HB 823.
