On Monday, April 30, the Texas Senate State Affairs Committee reported out House Bill 991 championed by State Representative Patrick Rose (D-Dripping Springs). HB 991, NRA-supported Concealed Handgun License (CHL) confidentiality legislation, passed by a 6-2 vote. The bill now moves to the full Senate for consideration.
HB 991 would restrict access to the CHL database to law enforcement only. Media organizations have launched a full-scale assault on HB 991, so it is critical that you contact your State Senator today and urge him or her to support HB 991.
