Current Bill Summary


SB 589 - Under current law, a concealed carry permit does not allow a person to carry concealed firearms into any higher education institution without the consent of the governing body of the institution or a school official. This act removes the prohibition on the carrying of concealed firearms into higher education institutions.

This provision is identical to HB 1899 (2016) and is similar to SB 731 (2016), HB 1910 (2016), and HB 2698 (2016).
