Rhode Island: Fee Increase to be Discussed in House Committee!

Friday, April 18, 2008

Please Plan to Attend This Important Meeting!

On Thursday, May 1, the Rhode Island House Finance Committee will consider House Bill 7247, sponsored by State Representative Arthur Corvese (D-55).  H7247 will implement a steep increase (over 50%) in fees for resident pistol permit holders.  Out-of-state permit holders would also see a sharp increase in fees with this bill, as well as a decrease in the length of permit duration from four years to one year. H7247 will be heard Thursday, May 1st at 1 P.M. in the Trainor Hearing Room, Room 35 of the State House. 

Please attend the hearing and show your opposition to this ill-conceived legislation.  If you are unable to attend, please contact the members of the House Finance Committee and respectfully urge them to oppose H7247.
