SB 142 was passed by the Senate and House in the final days of the session. This legislation made improvements to the carry law and enacted provisions that provide for the implementation of H.R. 218, federal legislation allowing qualified active and retired law enforcement officers to carry concealed firearms nationwide. The Kentucky State Police are currently experiencing a backlog of carry permit renewal applications. SB 142 allows a permit holder whose permit has expired to continue to carry a concealed firearm with the expired permit as long as the permit holder also has a receipt showing payment for renewal.
