Texas House Backs Handgun Licensing Fee Change

The Texas House of Representatives voted today to reduce the fee for a handgun carry license.

The Texas House voted 111-30 to approve the proposal, following the addition of an amendment that would waive the fee for peace officers. Under the new proposal, first time registration and renewal of license will be $40. Currently, the fees are $140 and $70, respectively.

Area representatives Four Price and John Smithee both voted for approval.
