The Texas House Public Safety Committee will consider HB 1301 by Representative Stephen Frost (D), the House companion bill to SB 730, on Monday, March 23. HB 1301 would prevent employers from making you choose between your personal safety and keeping your job. Big business and industry representatives will pull out all the stops to defeat this measure.
It's time to find out whether your State Representatives stand with corporate executives who make decisions about your personal safety from a boardroom, or whether your elected officials stand with hard-working Texans who simply wish to exercise their right to lawfully transport firearms in their cars and trucks -- a right recognized under state law that employers' "No Firearms" policies clearly conflict with.
Please contact members of the House Public Safety Committee and urge them to support HB 1301 with no gutting amendments. Contact information for the committee can be reached by clicking here.
