Important self-defense legislation, House Bill 1036, has been passed out of the House and has now been sent to the Senate for further consideration. Its companion bill, Senate Bill 17, is also pending Senate approval. Please contact your Senator and strongly urge them to SUPPORT these important measures when they come up for a vote.
House Bill 1036/Senate Bill 17, sponsored by Rep. Jim Dotson and Sen. Trent Garner respectively, will reduce the fee for a license to carry a concealed handgun and reduce the financial burden to obtain a license to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense. If enacted, the current fee of $100 would be reduced to $50 for first time applicants, and $25 for renewals and those over 65 years of age.
Again, please contact your Senator and strongly urge them to SUPPORT these important measures.
