    UT Senate Bill 227 meddles with Concealed Weapons Permit fees

    Senate Bill 227, by chronically anti-gun Sen. Scott McCoy, meddles
    with Concealed Weapons Permit fees. It would make a large
    increase in non-resident permit application and renewal fees.
    This bill RAISES Utah Resident permit fees even though the initial
    cost is reduced slightly, but raising renewals.
    What they donít tell you is that at the end of 2008 the state had
    a SURPLUS of $261,814 in the account for processing permits!

    They do NOT need more money to do their job.

    There are some clever word changes hidden in the bill that
    turns permit fees into a slush fund for the Utah Highway Patrol.

    This bill is on the agenda for Senate Judiciary, Law Enforcement,
    and Criminal Justice Committee Ė TOMORROW- Wednesday,
    25 February 2009, at 4:10 PM in Senate room 250.

    ACTION REQUIRED

    ASK the Committee members to VOTE AGAINST SB 227
    (Concealed Firearm Permit Fees Amendments)
    Please email, fax or call IMMEDIATELY, or before 3:00 PM
    on Wednesday because they will be meeting tomorrow afternoon!

    SAMPLE EMAIL OR FAX MESSAGE
    Subject: Vote AGAINST SB 227 (Concealed Firearm Permit fee amendments)

    Dear Senator ___________
    I am asking you to vote AGAINST SB 227 (Concealed Firearm
    Permit Fees Amendments).

    BCI is sitting on a SURPLUS of $261,814 in the permit
    fee account, so they do not need any increase in fees.

    Raising Utah resident fees is a sneaky smokescreen where
    the initial fee is lowered, but the renewal is raised.
    There is no need to increase non-resident fees either.

    Permit fees should not be turned into a cash cow for
    other state programs, and this funding should only
    support permit costs.

    Sincerely.
    [insert your name]
