Bill Caption

Relating to permitting certain foster homes to store firearms and ammunition in the same locked location.

Fiscal Notes

According to the Legislative Budget Board, no fiscal implication to the state is implicated. 

Bill Analysis

HB 2363 would allow possession of lawfully permitted firearms and ammunition in an agency foster home. It requires that the minimum standards must allow firearms and ammunition to be stored together in the same locked location. Currently, minimum standards require firearms and ammunition to be stored separately in locked locations.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action supports HB 2363 because it expands the lawful storage options of firearms for foster parents; ensuring that the principles of individual liberty and limited government are maintained.
