In the Texas House, Republican members are often faithful supporters of issues important to the gun and business lobbies. On Tuesday, they had to choose between the two.
And guns won.
With a voice vote, the House passed Senate Bill 321, which was sponsored by Rep. Tim Kleinschmidt, R-Lexington. Before the debate, he had swapped out his similar House version for the Senate bill, which has already passed the upper chamber. The measure would prohibit employers from banning guns in their employees’ vehicles that are parked at work.
