Representative George Lavender has filed House Bill 2756, which removes the requirement for Concealed Handgun Licensees to keep their handguns concealed at all times.
The full text of the bill can be found at http://www.legis.state.tx.us/BillLookup/History.aspx?LegSess=82R&Bill=HB2756
At this time a Senate companion bill has not yet been filed. Now is the time to get in touch with your state Senator to get a companion bill filed, and your House Representatives to get their support for HB 2756. I would recommend both an email and a phone call to their office.
