Louisiana: Bill Eliminating Concealed Permit Fees for Vets Sent to Governor

A bill to eliminate fees associated with acquiring a concealed handgun permit is sitting on Louisiana Governor John Bel Edward’s (D) desk.

The legislation — HB 304 — was sponsored by Louisiana Representative Tanner Magee (R-Dist. 53).

According to Task & Purpose, “a five-year [Louisiana] concealed carry permit costs $125 and a lifetime permit costs $500.” Veterans currently pay half price for either one, but Magee’s bill would eliminate the fees for veterans altogether.

LegiScan shows that HB 304 was sent to Governor Edwards on May 5 with a total of 59 state representatives signing on to sponsor the bill, in addition to Magee. The bill passed the House by a vote of 96-0 and passed the Senate by a vote of 37-1.
