Governor signs law making Texas gun fees nation's lowest

The Republican endorsed Friday a law dropping to $40, from $140, the cost of first-time permits, and from $70 to $40 fees for 5-year-renewals. Abbott then took target practice, as he often does after signing gun bills.

I got my notice in the mail in Jan. My permit expired in July. I waited until this month to do it because of the cost, and my recent move, remodel and divorce. I could have done it in January

Although, it remains to be seen when the lower fees kick in... my old permit would have expired in July
