    It appears that they are "stalled":

    MI Senate Version: http://legislature.mi.gov/doc.aspx?2009-SB-0792

    MI House Version: http://legislature.mi.gov/doc.aspx?2009-HB-5302

    BTW - These bills will not allow a person to carry at work, they are only designed to allow a person to store firearms in a person's vehicle while in an employer's parking lot.

    Here is what I got back from my email to the main sponsor of the bill:

    Unfortunately it looks like House leadership has killed this bill and that it is not going anywhere at this time. Speaker Dillon would control whether it can come up for a vote, but is right now opposed.

    Just remember, Michigan is an 'at will' state meaning that if they find out you're carrying at work, they can fire you because they don't like the color of your tie.

    Personally, this law means absolutely nothing to me. My employer will never find out my gun is in my car, regardless of what the law is, because I know if they do, I'll get fired for something stupid like that. My job is absolutely notorious for this.

    yep, the only two people who should know you are carrying at work is your and jesus. that being said, if one was legally able to conceal, well and comfortably at work, I know I would. Who knows, one day you might save your bosses life and then they'll change the firearms policy.

    Right now House and all House Committees in Michigan Legislature are controlled by Democrats. I think it will change hands this fall. Senate is already in Republican's hands and margin will get wider, I hope. Governor will also be Republican. I think after this November a lot of gun friendly Bills will go through, including right to store pistol in the car in employer parking lot.

    Well, for what it's worth. I'd carry a small 357 or 38spl+p hammerless in my pocket and never say anything to anyone. But that wouldn't effect any of my employee's cuzz I am a PRO-CARRY employeer.

    Advocating breaking the law, and advocating breaking policy are two different things. Ultimately, they are both rooted in the same basic motivation, but one can get you fired, the other can get you time in the gray bar hotel. Just saying.

    Gun control is like trying to reduce Drunk Driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.

    With freedom comes much responsibility. It is for this reason so many are loathe to exercise it.

    What kind of company do you have? Are you hiring?

    i may in fact be serious, depending on your answer.
