2016 Legislative SessionFebruary 3rd - May 4th
While this is a 'Short Session' with traditionally fewer bills that pertain to the 2nd Amendment, some bills usually find their way to committee. CCDL will be tracking and informing our members on any gun related Bills that surface during this session.
