...scheduled for public hearing tomorrow. On Tuesday, March 17th, the Senate Committee on Criminal Justice will hear SB 730 by Senator Glenn Hegar (R-Katy). SB 730 allows the legal possession of firearms and ammunition in an employee's personal locked vehicle when parked on the employer's parking lot.
This is a bill that we need to support. Call your Texas State Senator tomorrow and urge them to support SB 730. There is absolutely no way that I can get out of work tomorrow to testify at the committee meeting, or else I would be there. Hopefully when its House companion bill, HB 1301, is scheduled for a hearing I will be able to make it.
Here is the phone number for the clerk of the Senate Criminal Justice Committee: (512) 463-0345. Give Vanessa Valdez a call and let her know that we would like the committee to send this bill on as written.
The members of the Senate Criminal Justice Committee are:
Sen. John Whitmire
Sen. Kel Seliger
Sen. John Carona
Sen. Rodney Ellis
Sen. Glenn Hegar
Sen. Juan Hinojosa
Sen. Dan Patrick
After you contact your Texas State Senator, it might not be a bad idea to give the members of the committee a call.
You can look here for talking points in support of this bill if you would like.
This is important, call your Texas State Senator tomorrow morning. Better yet, FAX them this evening and follow up with a morning phone call.
