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.
