Fellow Texans

Our state legislature has filed two bills (HB681 & SB321) that would protect us from our employers prohibiting firearms kept in our car on the employer's property.

There is an attempt to introduce an amendment to this bill to exclude certain industries.

Please call/write/email your state senator and representative and ask them to support this bill and to not allow the amendment that would have fellow Texans shut out from their rights.

The house bill is currently under consideration by the Business and Industry Committee and the Senate bill has been referred to the Criminal Justice Committee.

Contact the House committee members below, be polite and urge these Texas House members to pass HB 681 out of their committee, protecting HB 681 from all Business or Industry amendments. Thank the authors and co-authors but say firmly, "NO amendments! Not in Committee or on the Floor!"

Next, call the Senate committee members below, again be polite and urge these Texas Senators to pass SB 321 out of Senate Criminal Justice Committee with NO Amendments!

As with the House members, thank the Author and Co-Authors but urge them also to resist amendments in committee and later on the chamber floor! NO Amendments!

You work for the beverage side, huh? Yeah, it's not likely to change, but you shouldn't have to give up you right to self defense because of the job you have. And thanks for whatever support you can give.
