2011 Texas Regular Session Wrap-Up

Great work, Texas NRA Members!
 
EMPLOYEE/PARKING LOT PROTECTION:
 
As reported to you last weekend, Senate Bill 321 has finally passed in the Texas Legislature and was sent to Governor Rick Perry for his signature. This NRA-backed legislation was authored by state Senator Glenn Hegar (R-Katy) and state Representative Tim Kleinschmidt (R-Lexington).  This bill prohibits employers from enacting and enforcing bans on employees transporting and storing firearms in their locked, private motor vehicles while parked at work.  If signed into law, this act will take effect on September 1, 2011.
 
This measure applies to both public and private employers, as well as all lawfully-owned firearms - not just firearms in the possession of Concealed Handgun Licensees.  However, SB 321 does not authorize an employee to possess firearms on any property where such possession is prohibited by state or federal law, and the provisions of the bill do not apply to the following:
 
?         Vehicles owned or leased by the employer and used by the employee for work purposes;
 
?         School districts, open enrollment charter schools, and private schools as defined in Section 22.081, Education Code;
 
?         Property owned or controlled by a person, other than an employer, that is subject to a valid, unexpired oil, gas, or other mineral lease that contains a provision prohibiting the possession of firearms on the property; or
 
?         Property owned or leased by a chemical manufacturer or oil and gas refiner permitted by TCEQ and on which the primary business conducted is the manufacture, use, storage or transportation of hazardous, combustible, or explosive materials; however, employees at  these facilities who are CHLs may store firearms (including rifles or shotguns) in their private motor vehicles in parking areas located outside of secured and restricted areas which contain the physical plant, are not open to the public and which are constantly monitored by security personnel.
