NRA Presents ALEC Model Legislation in Grapevine, Texas

Friday, August 12, 2005

At the recent Annual Meeting of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) in Grapevine, TX, Marion Hammer presented the ALEC Criminal Justice Task Force with proposed model legislation based on Florida's landmark "Castle Doctrine" law, that passed in Florida earlier this year. Her talk was well-received, and the task force subsequently adopted the measure unanimously. It will officially become ALEC Model Legislation in 30 days if there is no objection from the ALEC Board of Directors.
