no DPS update for all of 2012?

Postby superchief » Thu Oct 25, 2012 9:13 pm

Think we'll get through all of 2012 without any updates or any new information on CHL from the DPS? Did they close their office or something?

No new legislation since 2011. They don't meet again until next year.

I don't think the OP is speaking of law updates. Rather, he surely shares my concern that no effort has been made to communicate with instructors about procedural changes, such as submitting docs electronically.

Or changes to (or even the existence of) the administrative rules, which apparently they now teach are required to be known and followed by instructors.

Do they often make changes or updates in the even years when the legislature doesn't meet?

Changes or updates to what?

If you're referring to the Admin rules, my understanding is that it has nothing to do with the legislature. The legislature makes laws that control what is legal regarding concealed handgun carry, and the broad requirements for the CHL system (qualifications, etc). DPS makes administrative rules regarding how they administrate the CHL Licensing system -- which controls the specific procedures for applying, how to become an instructor, procedures and paperwork that instructors must follow, forms creation and modification, etc. They can change those at any time. For example, the new layout for the CHL-100 form requiring listing specific times for various class and range subjects was an administrative change. It did not come from the legislature.

Thanks. I figured if the legislature didn't make any changes then there weren't any changes to anything else needed.
