FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A bill seeking to create an online application process for Kentuckians wanting to get licenses to carry concealed weapons has sailed through a state Senate committee.

Republican Sen. Sara Beth Gregory said Thursday her bill is aimed at reducing the waiting time for the tens of thousands of people applying for concealed carry licenses. That wait can typically last four to six weeks.

The online process would also be available to people renewing licenses.

The measure was approved by the Senate Veterans, Military Affairs and Public Protection Committee without any opposition. It now heads to the full Senate.

The bill calls for a $70 fee for online applications. The current paper application process, which would still be available, has a $60 fee.

___

The legislation is Senate Bill 100.
