(KSL News) A Senate committee has advanced a bill allowing gun owners to keep a gun in their vehicle, so long as it's parked in a private lot.

Senate Bill 78 says a business can only stop an employee from bringing a firearm if the parking area is secured, which requires a fence and a security guard.

Those businesses will then be required to provide gun lockers if they don't want firearms kept in cars.

The bill passed the committee unanimously and goes up for vote in the full Senate.
