                                                                               SUMMARY OF HOUSE-PASSED BILL

                                                                                                         IN COMMITTEE










House Bill 4474 (Substitute H-2 as passed by the House)

Sponsor:  Representative Gary Glenn

House Committee:  Military Affairs

Senate Committee:  Veterans, Military Affairs and Homeland Security


Date Completed:  10-12-17




The bill would amend the Michigan Military Act to allow an individual who was licensed to carry a concealed pistol, or who was exempt from licensure, to possess a concealed weapon on the premises of a building or property under the authority of the Adjutant General.


Specifically, an individual who was licensed to carry a concealed pistol, or who was exempt from licensure under the handgun licensure Act, could possess a concealed weapon either on his or her person or properly secured while on the premises of an armory or any other building or property under the authority and control of the Adjutant General. The individual would have to comply with the requirements of that Act, and any other State law pertaining to concealed weapons and firearms.


(The handgun licensure Act governs, among other things, the issuance of concealed pistol licenses (CPLs), and specifies that the requirement to obtain a CPL does not apply to certain individuals, including a peace officer, a constable, certain employees of the Department of Corrections, or a resident of another state licensed by that state to carry a concealed pistol.)


The bill would prohibit the Adjutant General from promulgating rules that unduly burdened the ability of military personnel to possess a concealed weapon as described above.


The bill would take effect 90 days after its enactment.
