This Monday, February 28, the House Business and Industry Committee will hear House Bill 681, by state Representative Tim Kleinschmidt (R-Lexington). This NRA-backed legislation would prevent employers from enforcing policies against employees who transport firearms in their locked, private motor vehicles while parked at work.
Please contact members of the committee and urge them to support HB 681 and to oppose any hostile amendments to the bill that would exempt certain industry sectors or impose onerous restrictions on employees who wish to store guns in their cars and trucks on company property. Contact information for committee members can be found here.This Tuesday, March 1, the Senate Criminal Justice Committee will consider SB 321 by state Senator Glenn Hegar, the Senate companion bill to HB 681. Please contact members of the Senate Criminal Justice Committee with the same message, but on behalf of SB 321. Contact information for committee members can be found here.
