At the request of Gov. Perry, Rep. Isett's HB1038, which was to reduce initial and renewal CHL fees for seniors, saw a Committee substitute that would lower all CHL fees! I haven't seen the Committee substitute, but I understand the initial fee for everyone would be reduced to $100 and renewals to $50; seniors would still benefit from another 50% reduction.
This is a great development and with the Governor's support, this bill has a chance to pass. We need to thank Gov. Perry and Rep. Isett.
