On Tuesday, August 20, this committee will meet again from 10:00 am to 11:30 am at the Minnesota State Capitol in St. Paul on 75 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Room 107 to discuss policy changes to current standards regulating firearms on the Capitol Complex.   Please attend this meeting and OPPOSE these changes to current law that would ban the carrying of firearms in the state Capitol.  Public testimony will be heard (though time may be limited).  If you wish to testify, please submit your name in writing to view the agenda for this meeting, please click here.
