Alabama's “Worker Protection” Bill Stuck in Committee

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Please Contact the Members of the House Commerce Committee!

The Alabama House Commerce Committee heard Senate Bill 360 (the companion bill to House Bill 364) today, Wednesday, March 24.  The Committee took a voice vote to carry over the bill.  SB360 is unlikely to be heard again before the end of the session due to the upcoming discussions on the state budget.  Thus, this bill has ultimately died in committee.

Introduced by State Senator Roger Bedford (D-6), SB360 would permit a law-abiding individual to store firearms in a locked motor vehicle while parked on a publicly accessible parking lot controlled by an employer or a business that he or she frequents.  This legislation would protect your right to keep a firearm in your car for self-defense, hunting, or target shooting before or after work.

Thirteen other states have enacted similar legislation and NRA will continue to work tirelessly in Alabama on this issue.  Please thank Senator Bedford for his effort on SB360.  You can call him at (334) 242-7862 or email him at senbedford@aol.com.  Also, please take a moment to thank State Representative Craig Ford for sponsoring HB364.  He can be reached at (334) 242-7690 or by email at Craig.Ford@alhouse.gov.

Finally, please contact the members of the House Commerce Committee and respectfully express your disappointment that they did not pass SB360.  Contact information for the committee can be found below.
