Relating to the offense of possessing a weapon in a secured area of an airport.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 1168 would prohibit the carrying of a firearm on a tarmac or parking area for aircraft adjacent to airport terminals unless authorized by a federal agency. General Aviation areas of a commercial airport would be exempt from the provisions of this bill.
HB 1168 does not appear to affect our liberty principles, therefore, we remain neutral.
