House Bill 4955 to reduce the application fee for a License to Carry Deadly Weapons (LCDW) is currently before the Senate Finance Committee for consideration. Unfortunately, a number of sheriffs have lobbied against reducing the fee because they want to maintain their revenue stream from selling rights back to citizens. This is despite the sheriffs testifying in 2016 during the fight for constitutional carry that they would give away the permits for free if they could.
