Bill Prohibiting Local Regulation of Knives Passes Senate Committee

Posted on May 21, 2015 by Dene Westbrook

This week, SB 305, a bill to prohibit local units of government from regulating the transportation, possession, sale, or licensing of a knife or knife making components, passed the Senate Local Government Committee.  This bill would also prohibit a local unit of government from regulating the manufacture of a knife more restrictively than the manufacture of any other commercial good.

The League is opposed to this legislation and it is now before the full Senate.
