I work for TxDOT and this is directly from the HR Manual:
Employees will not carry or keep firearms or any other weapons on department property, except as allowed below, while on duty or while representing the department. Failure to comply with this policy will subject that individual to disciplinary action, up to and including termination.
It is not a violation for employees who lawfully possess firearms to transport and store firearms in a locked, privately owned motor vehicle while parked in a parking lot, garage, or other employee parking area provided by the department.
It is not a violation for employees or visitors to carry concealed handguns on department property if they are licensed in accordance with Texas Government Code, Chapter 411, Subchapter H. Employees and visitors must abide by all applicable state and federal laws, including that:
the handgun is kept concealed at all times, except to act in a life-threatening situation
the license is current and valid, and handguns must not be carried where prohibited by any state or federal law, which specifically includes Texas Penal Code, Chapter 46. This statute prohibits concealed handguns at any meeting of a government entity, among other prohibited locations. Any violation of any law concerning concealed handguns (such as a handgun in plain sight, or any other violation) will be referred to law enforcement authorities.
Employees who are licensed to carry a concealed handgun and who choose to carry a handgun while on department property are subject to immediate disciplinary action, up to and including termination, if their handgun becomes visible, unless acting in response to a life-threatening event. In such a case, an automatic investigation will be triggered to review the employee's handling of the situation.
Employees must not provoke or challenge anyone displaying or recklessly carrying a handgun, but must report the incident to building security or law enforcement personnel when and where it is safe to do so.
Maybe people are finally getting this right!

We need more states on board to do things like this.
About time someone has come to their senses. DOT offices just became much safer.
That's a fairly nice policy, there. Simple to understand, straightforward, explicit about what is allowable and supported, and direct about what happens if one doesn't have a CHL and take minimal steps to conform to the company environment.
And, kudos to you, you lucky dog.
The way all normal people should think and act...this company has it right.
