North Dakota’s Worker Protection Bill Assigned to Senate Committee

Friday, February 25, 2011

House Bill 1438 has been assigned to the Senate Industry, Business, and Labor Committee but no hearing date has currently been set.  This bill passed in the state House by a resounding 82 to 12 margin on February 21.  This victory came despite the aggressive lobbying efforts waged by big business lobbyists who strongly want to restrict stored firearms in locked private vehicles. 

Sponsored by state Representative Scot Kelsh (D-11), HB 1438 would allow North Dakota employees to store their firearms in locked personal vehicles on publicly accessible parking lots without fear of being fired.  HB 1438 is extremely important to hunters, target shooters and concealed weapons permit holders.  Businesses have no legitimate interest in micromanaging the lawful contents of one's private vehicle. 

Powerful big business lobbying groups will continue their onslaught, and the NRA is depending on you to make your voice heard in defense of the Second Amendment.  Please contact members of the Senate Industry, Business, and Labor Committee and respectfully urge them to SUPPORT HB 1438.  You may leave a message for this committee by calling (888) 635-3447 or by e-mail as listed below.
