Call legislators now on gun bills!

Two bills that would allow certain current and retired MDOC employees (Parole, Probation, Corrections Officers or Absconder Recovery Unit Members) to carry in weapons-free zones await final approval in the House and Senate respectively.

Because these bills are time sensitive, MCO needs all members to get involved and make calls to leaders in both chambers.  In the Senate we are asking you to call Senate Majority Leader Arlan Meekhof and ask for a formal Vote and his support on House Bill 4159.  Senator Meekhof can be reached at 517-373-6920.

In the House of Representatives we are asking you to call Speaker Kevin Cotter and ask for a formal Vote and his support on Senate Bill 516.  Speaker Cotter can be reached at 517-373-1789.

Remember to be polite and respectful, and if no one picks up leave a message.  We are also asking that you contact your own state representative and senator and urge support for these bills.
