This bill will raise the current carry permit application fee from $140 to $370 and raise the current renewal fee from $70 to $300. The Governor’s office has said this will put Connecticut in line with New York City’s fees. This is way above the fees the surrounding states charge for their permits. Surrounding state fee are:
New York’s range by country $100 – $130 for initial application with free renewals
Rhode Island $40
Massachusetts $100 for 6 years
New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine do not even require a permit, so they are FREE.

If you are unable to attend, but would still like to have your voice heard on this issue, please email your written testimony in Word or PDF format to: FINtestimony@cga.ct.gov
Members are encouraged to give oral testimony on how this fee increase will affect you and your family. Public speaker order will be determined by a lottery system. Lottery numbers will be drawn from 8:30 A.M. to 9:30 A.M. in First Floor Atrium of the LOB. Speakers arriving after the completion of the lottery will have their names placed at the end of the speaker list. Please submit 35 copies of written testimony to the Committee staff by 9:30 A.M. in First Floor Atrium of the LOB. Testimony received after the designated time may not be distributed until after the hearing. Please email written testimony in Word or PDF format to FINtestimony@cga.ct.gov .

The first hour of the hearing is reserved for Legislators, Constitutional Officers, State Agency Heads and Chief Elected Municipal Officials. Speakers will be limited to three minutes of testimony. The Committee encourages witnesses to submit a written statement and to condense oral testimony to a summary of that statement.

SUBJECT MATTER: Governor’s Bill
S.B. No. 787 – AN ACT CONCERNING REVENUE ITEMS TO IMPLEMENT THE GOVERNOR’S BUDGET.
Introduce yourself (state your name and related bill) and indicate whether you support or oppose the bill, or are offering suggestions to improve it. Clearly explain your reasoning. It may be helpful to write your viewpoint out completely. Keep your remarks short, approximately three minutes. After your testimony ask if any Committee members have any questions.
Our state is attacking our 2nd Amendment rights again, this time going after our wallets.
If you haven’t heard, the proposed budget includes increasing Pistol Permit Fees by over 400%. Renewals would be $300 under the new budget. This would make them the most expensive in the nation!
We need to fight back! State Senator Tony Guglielmo(R) has urged all permit holders to contact their state representatives and tell them you oppose this item in the budget. Below is a link you can see your reps listed by town. Its very easy and only takes a few minutes, which could save you hundreds of dollars down the road! Please act now!
