At the opening of the 2007 legislative session, we recognized that there was a need to keep people alerted to pending changes in law that would effect CCW licensees. To fulfill that need, we created a Notices and Legislative Action Page. Generally, it's purpose is for potential state or local changes but it is also used as a conduit to other information of interest - most recently, as example - the definition of firearms policy in IHOP Restaurants in New Mexico. Mark noticed that I referenced that page here but there was no link to the page. If you become aware of something changing in your area that you think others need to be made aware of, feel free to notify us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
