The Oregon State Police is currently holding hearings across the state, reviewing possible fee increases for services provided by the agency - including conducting background checks on firearms purchasers. State law currently mandates that the buyer must pay the $10 fee for this service, and OSP maintains records on individuals cleared for purchases. NRA-ILA strongly opposes OSP's proposal to nearly TRIPLE that fee to $28, as well as the agency's plan to continue registering legal firearms purchasers.
Please attend the hearing scheduled for Wednesday, June 16, from 9:00am-11:00am in the Mount Hood Room of the State Fire Marshall's Office, located at 4760 Portland Road in Salem, and voice your objections to increasing the tax on, or continuing to register, lawful gun buyers.
Because this is a widespread review of all OSP services, fingerprint processing fees for Concealed Handgun License applicants are also being examined for a similar hike.
