House Bill 2112

House Author:  Patrick et al.

Effective:  9-1-07

Senate Sponsor:  Hegar

            Previous law made it an offense to exhibit or use, or threaten to exhibit or use, a firearm in a manner that interferes with the normal use of a building or portion of a school campus or of a school bus.  House Bill 2112 amends the Education Code to add to the conditions that must be present to constitute an offense that such use, exhibition, or threat is made in a manner intended to cause alarm or personal injury to another or to damage school property.  The bill expands the places in which such conduct is prohibited to include in or on any school property, including a parking lot, parking garage, or other parking area.
