The Idaho Senate approved a proposal to let the Idaho State Police (ISP) create an electronic version of concealed weapons permit applications and abandon old triplicate forms. The plan now heads to the governor's desk for his signature. The switch could save ISP $2,500 a year.
“This bill simply removes the word triplicate and gives the department flexibility to create an electronic form, thus saving the taxpayers dollars,” said Sen. Mike Jorgenson, R-Hayden.
The proposal would also add lines on applications asking for a person's citizenship and place of birth. The new questions would enable Idaho to comply with federal background check laws.
