Today, Tuesday, April 20, House Bill 3125 passed the House Finance, Ways, and Means Committee by a vote of 20-6. Unfortunately, an anti-gun amendment has been attached to this bill. After much debate over the course of two committee meetings, this legislation now heads to the House Calendars and Rules Committee to be scheduled for a floor vote.
The companion bill to HB3125 is Senate Bill 3012, authored by State Senator Doug Jackson (D-25). A positive fiscal impact enabled it to skip the Senate Finance, Ways, and Means Committee, thus sending it straight to the Calendars and Rules Committee. SB3012 is anticipated to be heard on Monday, April 26 on the Senate floor.
Please contact your State Legislators and respectfully urge them to remove the anti-gun amendment from HB3125. Also, please ask them to support SB3012. Contact information for your State Legislators can be found here.
