Honorable Representative:

It has come to my attention that the Legislature is considering 
raiding excess funds in the Concealed Firearm Permit account. I 
understand there is a surplus of $5 million. That money has been paid by
CFP applicants and apparently is in excess of the actual cost of 
issuing permits. This money should stay in the CFP account and be used 
only  to administer the CFP issuance program. If there is that much 
excess the fee for issuing permits should be reduced going forward. To 
raid the fund now to bolster the General Fund sounds a lot like a tax to
me. As CFP holders we have apparently overpaid. By raiding the CFP fund
HB134 would be akin to taking money from CFP holders, an unfair tax.

I strongly urge you to vote NO on HB134.
