Some info on the Special Session (83-1) is on the Legislature Pages and does contain Campus Carry.

Edited above post you quoted as there are a couple of others as well.

House:
http://www.capitol.state.tx.us/Reports/ ... housefiled" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Senate:
http://www.capitol.state.tx.us/Reports/ ... enatefiled" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Campus Carry filed in both the House and Senate.
It is the only main one, although there are a couple of others also filed that are less important.

I didn't notice anything that would reverse Statewide Carry for Legislative Members! :banghead:
But I would hope that Gov. Perry would Veto it if necessary.

Yes, campus carry bills have been filed in both the House and the Senate, but the bills won't be eligible for a floor vote until/unless Governor Perry adds campus carry to the special session agenda.

Statewide carry for legislators didn't pass. Unfortunately, that means that the good parts of HB 508 (to which the statewide-carry-for-legislators amendment was added) also died.

I find it interesting that various legislators are even allowed to file bills that are not on the call. I don't know that the practice is permissible or an authorized expenditure of state funds in doing so. The legislature is supposed to be working on what the Governor transmitted when he called the legislature into session, but then again when did such details bother the lege?

On Reddit I saw that open carry had been added to the special session. Can anyone confirm if this is true or not?

Nobius, Lavendar filed a bill for OC in the special session; but that is different from the Governor adding OC to the agenda for the special session. A lot of people get that confused.

That seems to be a common misconception about all the gun bills.

That legislators can file a bill on any topic during the special session is actually one of the few efficiencies of state government. Knowing that any topic can be added at any time, having the off-topic bills filled ahead of the call actually saves time in that the bills are immediately available for consideration.

Another positive for a legislator is to be able to claim that you tried. I filed the special bill for topic XYZ but the Governor didn't open up the special session. Blame him.

I just got this e-mail from the NRA-ILA:

"While transportation, pro-life and juvenile justice issues have been added to the call for the current special session, the NRA has been informed that important Second Amendment issues such as campus carry will NOT be included. While Governor Rick Perry (R) has the authority to add subjects to the call, he does so with input from the Lieutenant Governor (who presides over the state Senate) and the Speaker of the House. Please express your dissatisfaction with the following officials:"

Sounds like we are done.

I got this from NRA



"Texas: Campus Carry Will NOT Be on Special Session Call
Make sure to register your dissatisfaction with important government officials

While transportation, pro-life and juvenile justice issues have been added to the call for the current special session, the NRA has been informed that important Second Amendment issues such as campus carry will NOT be included. While Governor Rick Perry (R) has the authority to add subjects to the call, he does so with input from the Lieutenant Governor (who presides over the state Senate) and the Speaker of the House. Please express your dissatisfaction with the following officials:

Governor Rick Perry:

Main Switchboard [8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CST]
(512) 463-2000
E-mail
Toll-free Information and Referral Hotline [for Texas callers]
(800) 843-5789

Information and Referral and Opinion Hotline [for Austin and out-of-state callers]
(512) 463-1782

Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst
512-463-0001
E-mail

House Speaker Joe Straus
512-463-1000
E-mail"

This is disappointing.

It is disgraceful. I can't understand why these "conservatives" are so scared to put this issue up for a vote.
