With SB 286, the omnibus gun bill, expected to be on the floor of the Senate on Thursday, reporter Nick Banaszak of WHNT News 19 in Huntsville sat down for an interview with former BCA Chairman and current board member Phil Dotts of Public Financial Management. Dotts stressed to Banaszak that employers should have the right to make their own rules on company property and why it is just another burdensome regulation on businesses.
“At a time when the business community in all sectors should be focused on creating jobs, we instead are dealing with this unnecessary legislation which erodes the constitutional property rights of businesses,” BCA President and CEO William J. Canary said earlier this week. “We have said from the beginning that in order to support this legislation, businesses must be immune from civil liability, the bill must apply equally to everyone in Alabama, and there must be an opt-in opt-out provision for businesses.”
