House Bill 1819, an important reform to the Governor's Emergency Powers, is expected to be heard tomorrow in the House State Agencies & Governmental Affairs Committee. HB 1819, introduced by state Representative Charlotte Vining Douglas (R-75), would remove the ability of any Arkansas Governor to impose restrictions on the transfer or transportation of lawfully possessed firearms during a declared State of Emergency. This committee is scheduled to meet tomorrow, at 10:00 AM in Room 151 of the State Capitol in Little Rock, so please attend to support HB 1819 if possible.
If you cannot attend, please contact members of the House State Agencies & Governmental Affairs Committee TODAY and urge them to support HB 1819.
Representative Andrea Lea (Chairman)
Representative Butch Wilkins (Vice Chairman)
