!ALERT! – ARIZONA CITIZENS DEFENSE LEAGUE (“AzCDL”)
The status and summary of bills that AzCDL is monitoring can be found on our Bill Tracking page.
The deadline for all bills to be heard in committees in their originating chamber (House or Senate) is Friday, February 19, less than two weeks away. Most of the bills we are monitoring will not survive that deadline.
We thank everyone who used their RTS accounts to contact committee members about legislation this past week. Thanks in large part to your activism, the following key bills passed out of committee this week.
HB 2081, which would prohibit checking with any federal (e.g., NICS) or state database on private property transfers, passed out of the House Commerce Committee on February 3.
SB 1257, the AzCDL-requested bill that would exempt CCW permit holders from being disarmed when entering state and local government controlled property unless everyone entering is screened for weapons, passed out of the Senate Government Committee on Wednesday, February 3.
SB 1266, which would allow for injunctions, fines and civil suits when state agencies or local governments disregard state firearm preemption statutes, passed out of both the Senate Public Safety, Military & Technology Committee and the Senate Government Committee on Wednesday, February 3.
Pending Floor Votes
We expect to see several important bills scheduled for floor votes in the coming week. As calendars are made available, we will alert you to contact your elected Representatives or Senator, using our Legislative Action Center, where we will have emails prepared and ready for you send with just a few mouse clicks.
The drawing date for our latest raffle is March 6. We’re giving away three Glock Model 34, Gen 4, long slide, 9mm pistols. Tickets are still available and can be purchased at our online store.
These alerts are a project of the Arizona Citizens Defense League (AzCDL), an all-volunteer, non-profit, non-partisan grassroots organization.
