Texas: NRA-Backed Employee Protection/Parking Lot Legislation Goes to Governor Perry for His Signature!

Friday, May 27, 2011

Your Support Needed – Please Contact the Governor Today!

This past week, the Texas House and Senate approved the conference committee report on Senate Bill 321.  This NRA-backed employee protection/parking lot legislation was sponsored by state Senator Glenn Hegar (R-Katy) and state Representative Tim Kleinschmidt (R-Lexington).  If signed into law, this bill would prevent employers from enacting and enforcing policies to prohibit employees from storing firearms in their locked private motor vehicles while parked at work.  Passage of this measure had been strongly opposed by powerful business and industry groups in previous years, but hard-working, law-abiding Texas gun owners finally prevailed this session thanks to your phone calls and emails over the last five months!

SB 321 now goes to Governor Rick Perry for his consideration.  Please contact his office to thank him for his past support and urge him to sign SB 321 into law.  The Governor’s office may be reached by phone at 1-800-252-9600 or e-mail by clicking here.
