One worry might be if it conflicted with any reciprocity agreements, but I doubt it would.

A. IMMEDIATELY check if the packet is complete
B. Run a NIC check on the applicant
C. If A and B are ok, they should then issue a temporary paper license (this should be required to be issued within 5 working days. Temporary paper license would probably NOT qualify for at least some states reciprocity)
D. Run existing backround checks and issue within present 60 day timeframe
I also think the shooting part of the renewal class should be dropped though I favor continuing the requirement for the initial CHL.
By the way, I received my CHL in December, since my Brithday is in January I only got a 4 year (+ 10 days) CHL.

I would think that anyone who goes to the trouble of getting a CHL and then the effort of renewing it most likely shoots well enough to qualify with ease, which was why I thought it need not be repeated.

However, one thing I want to pursue is requiring DPS to run a NICS check immediately upon receipt of a new or renewal application and then issue the CHL while the non-criminal portion of the background check is underway; i.e. school loans, child-support, taxes, etc.
Sometimes just the use of the term "Temporary" will cause a problem. That was the thing that kept us from getting reciprocity with Colorado. When we were able to confirm a NICS-type background check was done first, we were able to get the reciprocity agreement.
