We originally reported that House Bill 754 was passed over for the day. While this legislation was initially passed over, the Senate did vote to pass the bill by a 27 to 13 vote. HB 754 will now be sent to Governor Bob McDonnell for his consideration.
Sponsored by Delegate Ben Cline (R-24), HB 754 would remove the option for a locality to require that an applicant for a concealed handgun permit submit fingerprints as part of the application.
