Very good news on CHL bills in Oregon Senate

by NW Spotlight

Update on two bills related to Concealed Hangun License (CHL) holders

HB 4045 (CHL privacy) passed out of the Senate today. This bill strengthens the protection of the confidential information that CHL applicants are required to provide in order to obtain their licenses.

SB 1594, a bad bill that would have taken away rights of CHL holders to legally carry on school grounds/college campuses, failed in a 14-15 vote. All CHL holders already must be at least 21 years old and must pass an FBI background check.

No Senate Republicans voted for the bad bill, SB 1594, the bill that would have taken away rights of CHL holders to legally carry on school grounds/college campuses. This was good news because there were some concerns that some might cave. Two Democrats also voted against the bad bill: Sen. Betsy Johnson and Sen. Joanne Verger.

Thanks for all your calls and emails calling for our legislature to do the right thing!
