“Hotels will have to adequately notify guests of gun restrictions or face penalties if a bill becomes law.

House Bill 333, authored by State Rep. Ryan Guillen, D-Rio Grande City, requires hotels that restrict the possession, storage or transporting of firearms to notify guests of such policies on their websites or when confirming reservations.
