AKTI extends heartfelt thanks to….
Senator Deuell and Representative Driver for their support by introducing bills in the Texas Senate (TX S 2411) and House of Representatives (HB 4456). The Texas legislature unanimously supported AKTI’s effort to clarify Texas knife statutes and assure that law-abiding individuals were not wrongly accused of possessing switchblades. AKTI’s advocacy representative did an outstanding job of spearheading the efforts from initiation to signing.
