Good News: Bills Favorably Reported Out of Committee

Good News: Bills Favorably Reported Out of Committee
H 3101  Obama Care Nullification  
by Bill Chumley was favorably reported out of subcommittee today, I understand with amendment.
We are filled with admiration for Representative Chumley, who didn't know it couldn't be done - so he did it.
We were there a half hour early for the Hearing but could not get in.  We have reports that the testimony by Walter Williams and Kent Brown were very convincing, and the room was packed to capacity. The bill gained 3 new sponsors today.
Where to from here?
Stand by - bill must go through full House Judiciary Committee now. Check the Legislative webpage in the committee meeting schedule for the House.  We will attempt to keep you informed.
S-115    Constitutional Carry (without permit)  
by Lee Bright   was reported favorably out of Senate Subcommittee today - with proposed amendments, dealing with whether any felon could carry, and whether Constitutional Carry would be allowed on public property.
Our thanks to the many good folks who provided testimony today, among them Denise Snelling of Palmetto Gun Rights, and Talbert Black of Campaign for Liberty, both of whom having have done a terrific job of getting the word out to the public about these meetings. We are indeed grateful for the work of Liberty Senators Lee Bright and Shane Martin.
We would like to say that Senator Hembree came through, indicating a willingness to move this bill forward with his concerns addressed. Senators Malloy and Hutto agreed to this, but obviously have reservations, and I am sure we will be hearing more about that in the full Judiciary hearings.
Where to from here?
Bill will now go to full Senate Judiciary Committee (urge Senator Larry Martin to quickly place on the Agenda)
Thanks to everyone for your many calls and emails and visits to these Legislators, and for attending all these meetings across the state. Your hard work paid off today. If you were unable to get into a meeting today (and many of you traveled a good way to be in Columbia), please note that the legislators and the media did take note of the tremendous citizen participation for these bills.
Put your feet up, and rest, for the next round begins shortly.
