HB 233...

#1

Interesting analysis...

http://www.capitol.state.tx.us/tlodocs/ ... 00233I.HTM

I thought there was a larger precentage of "veterans" in the Texas CHL community...

They say only 11.2% out of the entire number of CHL licensees...

So the fiscal impact to the revenue generated is less that I thought...

The numbers in the report are very interesting...And the projection out to 2012 proves how little an impact it is...

Like I said I wish this had gone through 2 years ago...Our license budget would have been cut in half...

Stevie D,

This is a quote from the link you provided:

"the Comptroller of Public Accounts assumed that 11.2 percent of current licenses belong to veterans."

I'ld be willing to bet he/she ASSUMED wrong.

It would be interesting to know the REAL percentage of veterans that hold CHL.

Someone with computer skill could probably poll the forum and get an estimate.

OE,

Thats what I'm still kinda thinking...But at this point I (and many others) would like to see this pass for obvious reasons...

What gets me is how do they know??? I do not recall anywhere in the paperwork I fill out where it asks me if I am a veteran...Or anything about a discharge status or condition...

Unless during the "investigation" the DPS discovers this information...

I believe at this point a veteran would have to file a copy of your DD-214 with this particular state office for the waiver of any fees to take place...

:lol: I know having lived at such a place does not make one a veteran, but I thought it was funny.

Take away the second first, and the first is gone in a second.

True...True...

I had an FPO for a while...

I'm still betting we'd have to file a DD-214 with this agency to get the fees waived...That wouldn't be that bad a thing either...Would probably save them and us time in investigations if we submitted a certified copy...

But I guess we'll have to see if they can figure out a plan to implement this bill if it becomes law...
