Texas legislators just finished the last touches on a new bill, and have sent it off to Governor Greg Abbott. If passed, the Lone State’s concealed carry permit fee will be greatly reduced!
I sure wish Georgia lawmakers would work on this as well!
TRENDING ON Keep And Bear
On May 11, Texas Senate gave their final nod of approval for SB 16, which was agreed upon in a landslide, with a 26-5 vote. In the passing of the bill, permit fees will be slashed from a whopping $140 to a more affordable $40 for first-time applicants, and from $70 to $40 for permit renewals.
There should not be such a large fee to pay to have the right to defend yourself! I am on board with Texas lawmakers on this one.
The measure was backed by Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick as a legislative prioritypost was originally published on this site
