Senate Bill 11, sponsored by NRA Board Member and State Senator, Johnny Nugent, passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee by a 6-2 vote. Thank you for contacting the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and requesting a hearing for Indiana's Parking Lot Bill. SB 11 now heads to the full Senate for a floor vote next week.
It is imperative that you call your State Senator TODAY and ask them to support this very important legislation. Despite claims that this legislation would violate Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines, a recent letter from the U.S. Department of Labor Acting Assistant Secretary proclaimed that Parking Lot bills, “do not on their face pose a conflict with the general duty clause or purpose of the OSH Act.” Please read the whole of the OSHA letter here: http://www.nraila.org/media/PDFs/OSHAParkingLotLtr01162009.pdf.
Please contact your State Senator and urge him or her to support the important piece of legislation. Your can find their contact information by clicking here.
