Sen. Ellis on State Affairs hearing on “campus carry” and “open carry” bills


(Austin, TX) // Senator Rodney Ellis (D-Houston), Vice Chair of the Senate Committee on State Affairs, released the following statement today regarding the Committee’s hearing on SB 11 and SB 17, the so-called “campus carry” and “open carry” bills:

“There are an endless number of more pressing challenges facing this legislature, from investing in and improving our state’s neighborhood schools, to providing access to quality, affordable health care for the millions of uninsured Texans, to ensuring economic opportunity for all hard working Texas families. I’m disappointed we’re not working together to make progress in addressing these problems instead of making SB 11 and SB 17 the Senate’s first priorities.”
