Yesterday, NRA-supported House Bill 4045 passed in the state House of Representatives by a 44 to 14 vote. HB 4045 has been forwarded to the Oregon Senate, but has not yet been assigned to a committee. Sponsored by state Representative Kim Thatcher (R-25), HB 4045 would provide for the confidentiality of Concealed Handgun License holders’ personal information.
It is extremely important that NRA members contact Senate President Peter Courtney (D-11) as soon as possible and ask that he assign HB 4045 to a committee and order a hearing with no amendments attached so this bill can move to the Senate floor immediately. To reach state Senator Courtney, please call (503) 986-1600 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, please call and e-mail your state Senator and respectfully urge him or her to encourage the Senate leadership to move HB 4045. To determine who your state Senator is, please click here. For the entire Senate roster, please click here.
