SECTION 4. Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code, is
amended by adding Section 411.1951 to read as follows:
Sec. 411.1951. REDUCTION OF FEES FOR MEMBERS OF UNITED
STATES ARMED FORCES. Notwithstanding any other provision of this
subchapter, the department shall reduce by 50 percent any fee
required for the issuance of an original, duplicate, modified, or
renewed license under this subchapter if the applicant for the
license is a member of the United States armed forces, including a
member of the reserves, national guard, or state guard.
SECTION 5. This Act takes effect September 1, 2005.

You got that right!!! I am right, right on...

So if I join up in the "Texas State Guard" I can get a 50% reduction in my next renewal...

I've been considering affiliating with that organization for a while...A few people have been bugging me about going ahead and doing that...

The problem is I'm a rust-picker squiddly guy...I don't know much about that Army stuff...And I'm too old to go playing boot camp again...As much as some of you would love to see me ace that program... :lol:

But what if I have an "XD" type pistol???

That would be cool...

One thing to think about...

Who would be the largest segment of CHL holders in this State???

Why would the State cut their throats on the largest segment of the CHL community by allowing them to pay half of what they used to take in...

Its not some much that we didn't get the fee reduced...

Its the fact that the bill got introduced to cut a break to all Veterans, then they realized it would reduce a revenue source, then Opps!!! Lets don;t do that...

But lets keep the active duty exemption (which is ok by me) but you realize the rub I had with the whole thing...

But this is just what I understood to be going on with that bill...

I posted this on TPXDSA forum and all said to wait, but now I found this site and you all seem to be the experts on Texas CHL's so I ask your advice.
I'm a Vet too...

But what I got out of that bill that would have cut in half our fee to renew or get a new licence for that matter, didn't change for Veterans...

It only cut in half the fee for active duty personel...

It did at one point cover ALL Veterans...But they amended it and removed the retired or non-active duty Veterans exemption or status...And left in the clause to only apply to "active duty personel"

I stand to be corrected, but thats what I had heard, and that bill passed...And goes into effect September 1, 2005...

If I am wrong Woo Hoo! I can do $35 (if thats the right fee now for renewals)...

Somebody slap me if I'm wrong, K?
