Any word on HB 937?

Has anyone heard any word on the status of HB 937 relating to campus carry? I see that it is in calenders and is has been sitting there for almost a week. Is it a possibility that it will die in calenders or is it most likely to go to the House floor?

Re: UT Austin campus rules question

Thanks for your help! The campus police website is not really very clear. That helps because it would be a hassle to leave it in my hotel when I plan to be on campus. The rest of the time I am in Austin, I will be carrying. :txflag:

UT Austin campus rules question

I will be traveling to Austin and spending some time on the UT campus this weekend. Can someone tell me if it is ok to have a gun in a locked vehicle on the UT Austin campus?

Re: HB 972 -Not enough votes?

I called Robert Duncan's office today. One of his staff said that Duncan is definitely supporting HB972. I also asked him what he thinks our chances are and he said he thinks the dems have enough votes to block the bill.. If that happens, maybe we will see an even better bill pop up in special sessi...

Prayers for Oklahoma

Just wanted to say a prayer for the families and loved ones in Oklahoma who have suffered from the tornados the last few days. Lets hope they find some of those children alive and safe. I just can't imagine what the families feel today.

Re: HB 972 -Not enough votes?

What does "Co-Sponsor Authorized" mean? I looked up the status of the bill on the Texas Legislature page and this is the last action listed dated 5/20/13. Does that mean that they have the 21 votes to get it to the floor?

Re: HB 508, HB 928, HB 972, HB 1349 on the Senate Calendar t

Called Sen Whitmore about HB972 and was told flat out by Tara there's no way he's going to support it. Whitmire is opposed to the opt-out provision. He wants a bill that mandates that public schools MUST allow CHL carry on campus. He said, in committee, that if HB 972 fails, a stronger bill WILL be...

HB 972 -Not enough votes?

I work at a community college and we just got an email from our college president that HB972 does not have the 21 votes needed to bring the vote to the senate floor. He said Birdwell has the rest of the week to get enough votes. Has anyone else heard this? It seems to me that if this is the case, it...

Re: Committee substitute for HB 972 passes committee

This is a lousy bill. It allows public universities to opt out of allowing campus carry. Guess how many will opt out? Why even bother passing the dern thing? This is the text of the original bill . Where can I find text to the substitute to HB 972? Because HB 972 states "(e) A private or independen...
