OKLAHOMA CITY – Officials with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said their agency could lose up to $8 million under a gun bill that passed the Senate on Thursday. OSBI is already freezing positions, and officials tell NewsChannel 4 they’re looking at furloughs. Aside from public safety concerns, the OSBI is looking at how a pair of gun bills could trim their budget even more .More than a quarter million people in Oklahoma have a license to carry a gun.The OSBI issues and renews those licenses, and that money helps fund the agency.

Florida’s CWP Fees can only be used for permit-related business. Apparently it has grown enough that our fees for the 7-year license have (will) come down again to $60 for the first time and $50 for renewal. Legislators in the past have been tempted to try and divert those funds, but they were slapped hard and told not to touch the CWP Piggy Bank.
