Phillips’ HB 910 is scheduled for hearing in Senate State Affairs Committee on Monday. After a repeat of everything that’s been said previously by the antis in past hearings, it could go to floor as early as next week. If it passes floor vote clean, it would be good to go for Governor Abbott to sign. If they amend it . . .
that version would have to go back to House to vote on amendment. Not sure whether the Senate will try to amend it with Campus Carry. If they do they run the risk of having the clock run out.
It looks like the House Homeland Security and Public Safety Commitee pulled an accelerated formal meeting and reported out the Senate Campus Carry bill pushing it back to House Calendars Committee. My read is that the Senate is going to take the House open carry bill and the House will take up the Senate bill so each gets to take some credit.
Too early to celebrate, but this is positive movement. The Dems are desperately trying to run clock out on the majority, so the sooner they floor vote the better.
