New Mexico Senate Passes Restaurant Carry Bill as House Judiciary Committee Approves Companion Bill!

Thursday, March 12, 2009

Please Contact your State Legislators!

On Wednesday, the New Mexico Senate approved Senate Bill 608 by State Senator George Munoz (D-4) by a 26-15 vote.  This NRA-backed legislation would enable Concealed Handgun Licensees to protect themselves in dining establishments that are licensed to serve alcohol, if more than half of their revenue is generated from food sales. 

Please visit http://www.nmlegis.gov/lcs/BillFinderNumber.aspx to find out how your Senator voted on this important bill, and be sure to email a note of thanks to your Senator if he or she supported SB 608.  Contact information for State Senators can be found at http://www.nmlegis.gov/lcs/legislatorsearch.aspx.

Also on Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee reported out House Bill 105 by State Representative John Heaton (D-55), the House version of the "restaurant carry" bill.  Please send a quick email of thanks to Committee Chairman Al Park (D-26) for setting the bill for a hearing this week, and to Committee Member State Representative Elias Barela (D-8) for helping shepherd this issue through the committee process.  HB 105 now moves to the full House for consideration. 

Please contact your State Representatives and urge them to support HB 105 when it comes to the House floor for a vote.  Contact information for Representatives Park & Barela, as well as for your House member, can be found at http://www.nmlegis.gov/lcs/legislatorsearch.aspx.

With only 9 days left in session, it's critical that you make your contacts with state lawmakers polite and brief!  A simple "Thank You for Supporting SB 608 or HB 105" in the subject line would be adequate.
