Confidentiality Bill Heads to Governor Perry!
Thank You for Your Calls and Support of HB
On Wednesday, May 9,
the Texas Senate gave final approval to House Bill 991, the Concealed
Handgun License confidentiality (CHL) bill sponsored by State
Representative Patrick Rose (D-Dripping Springs) and State Senator Bob
Deuell (R-Greenville). The bill now goes to Governor Rick Perry (R)
for his signature.
Passage of this measure
to keep records of CHLs private for personal security reasons is the
culmination of an effort that spanned three legislative sessions.
The media aggressively opposed the measure, and passage of HB 991 is a key
victory for law-abiding Texas CHLs.
Please take a moment to
send a note of thanks to the authors of the bill: Representative
Patrick Rose at email@example.com and Senator Bob Deuell at
Also, please take a
moment to thank the respective chairmen of the committees who set the bill
for hearings and reported it out promptly to ensure its passage:
State Senator Robert Duncan (R-Lubbock), Chairman of the Senate State
Affairs Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org and State
Representative Joe Driver (R-Garland), Chairman of the House Law
Enforcement Committee, at
Thank you for all your
calls and emails in support HB 991, which ensured strong, bi-partisan
support of the measure in both the House and the Senate.
