SB16 would have removed $140 fee
CSSB16 Committee Substitute reduced Fee from $140 to just $40 to just cover DPS Administrative Costs (More likely to get approved with zero Negative Fiscal Impact to the State)

Biggest issue seems to be State gets less of our money (Fiscal Note)
Some (Dems) who say they would support it say they won't support it because of it reduces State's revenue/income by $15 million
CSSB16 26 to 5 Passes (Senate) ... on to the House

So these dems believe that only the wealthy should have civil rights, and the poor can just go without? I wonder if they would apply this same logic to other civil rights like voting? After all, we currently have no fee for a voter registration card. Maybe we should just tie that fee to the LTC fee so they are the same.

I can't think of a reason a LTC should cost more than a DL, especially when LTC is all centralized while DPS needs many local offices to issue DL, not to mention the cost to administer the written and road tests.
This is my opinion. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

Philosophically, I feel that there should be no fee for an LTC. If the background check is for the public safety, then the public should shoulder the cost as they shoulder the cost of police protection, code enforcement, garbage service, etc.

That said, the fingerprint background check costs $23.50 for each LTC, if the fee has not gone up in the last four years. That leaves only $16.50 for DPS to process the application, print and mail the license. That's why SB16 was amended to charge a $40 fee for new and renewal LTC, while leaving discounts in place for those who qualify.

Very happy that SB16 is moving onto the house. Plenty of time for this to get through that side of the capitol.

House version with matching amendments voted out of committee this morning.
When any govt, or church,says This you can't read, are forbidden to know, the result is tyranny and oppression. Little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked; no force can control a free man, not the rack, bombs, not anything, you can't conquer a free man, at most you can kill him.
