Alabama Worker Protection Bill to be Heard on Wednesday, March 25!

Wednesday, March 18, 2009

Please Contact the Members of the House Commerce Committee Today!

House Bill 362, sponsored by State Representative Craig Ford (D-28), is expected to be heard on Wednesday, March 25 in the House Commerce Committee. 

HB 362 would protect your right to lawfully transport and store firearms in a privately-owned and locked motor vehicle while parked in publicly accessible parking lots controlled by your employer or a business you frequent. 

Last month, the Tenth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals upheld an Oklahoma statute that protects the rights of employees to store firearms in locked vehicles in publicly accessible parking lots.  The proposed Alabama bill is very similar to the Oklahoma law and should withstand any similar challenges that might be launched.

Please contact the members of the House Commerce Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to vote in favor of HB 362.  Contact information can be found below. 

Also, please thank State Representative Craig Ford (D-28) for sponsoring HB 362 and agreeing to table any further exemption amendments.  Contact information for Representative Ford can be found by clicking here.  

Please thank State Senator Roger Bedford (D-6) for sponsoring and moving Senate Bill 407, the companion bill, out of the Senate Judiciary Committee without any restricting amendments.  Contact information for Senator Bedford can be found here.

Finally, please call and thank State Senator Rodger Smitherman (D-18), Pro Tem of the Senate, and thank him for his help in by advancing SB 407.
  Senator Smitherman’s contact information can be found by clicking here.
