Sunday, May 3, 2009

Stand-Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

On Thursday, April 30, the General Assembly Conference Committee was formed to discuss House Bill 962, as amended by the Senate.  The ten members of the Conference Committee will meet on Monday, May 4 at 2:00 p.m. in Room 31 of the Legislative Plaza at the State Capitol. 

HB962 would enable a person who has a valid Right-to-Carry permit to carry a firearm into restaurants where alcohol may be served, as long as the permit holder is not consuming alcohol or is not otherwise prohibited by posting provisions.  Both the House and Senate will need to approve the conference committee report on HB962.
