THE SECOND BILL: Senate Bill 544 by Senator Wilton Simpson (R-New Port Richey) is scheduled for its 1st hearing in the same committee -- Senate Criminal Justice Committee on Monday, February 2, at 4:00pm

SB-544 is a bill to allow the Division of Licensing to designate qualified Tax Collectors to conduct the  "Fast-Track" concealed weapons licensing application process in their respective counties.  This brings the process closer to the people and makes it more convenient for applicants.

Tax collectors are NOT going to ISSUE licenses. They are only going to handle the PAPERWORK for the Division of Licensing. They will only be performing a clerical function and have no decision making power. They will only help people complete the application, fingerprint applicants, photograph applicants, collect their money and their training certificates then send it all off -- electronically -- to the Division of Licensing.
