BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana’s lawmakers have decided veterans should be exempt from having to pay a state fee to get a concealed carry permit.

The Senate gave final passage to the proposal with a 37-1 vote Tuesday, sending it to the governor’s desk.

A five-year concealed carry permit costs $125 and a lifetime permit costs $500, with veterans currently charged half the fee’s price tag. The bill by Rep. Tanner Magee, a Houma Republican, would do away with the fees for veterans entirely.
