The Honorable Mike Thompson, Chairperson
Senate Committee on Federal and State Affairs
300 SW 10th Avenue, Room 144-S
Topeka, Kansas 66612
Dear Senator Thompson:
SUBJECT: Fiscal Note for SB 250 by Senate Committee on Federal and State Affairs
In accordance with KSA 75-3715a, the following fiscal note concerning SB 250 is
respectfully submitted to your committee.
SB 250 would amend the Personal and Family Protection Act. Currently, a concealed carry
license permit costs $132.50, of which $100 is paid to the Attorney General and $32.50 is paid to
county sheriff where the applicant resides. The bill would remove the $100 payment to the
Attorney General. The bill would also remove the $25 renewal fee and late fees paid to the
Attorney General. Under current law, a person issued a concealed carry license pays the
Department of Revenue a fee for the cost of a license. The bill would no longer require this fee to
be paid.
The Office of the Attorney General states that deleting the licensing fees would result in a
loss of approximately $1.2 million in fee fund revenues for FY 2024. The fees are used to pay the
salaries, wages, and operating expenses of the Concealed Carry Licensing Unit. If the bill were
enacted, the agency would require State General Funds to replace the loss of fee fund revenues to
support the operations of the Unit.
The Department of Revenue indicates that over the past five years it has issued an average
of 21,139 concealed carry licenses each year. The license carrier currently pays $16 for a license,
of which $8 is paid to the vendor and $8 is deposited into the State Highway Fund. The total loss
of revenue would be $338,224 ($16 x 21,139) in FY 2024. If the bill were enacted, the agency
states that the Driver’s License Photo Fee Fund would be used to pay the $8 that is paid to the
vendor. In addition, the agency would need to remove the fees for a concealed carry license in its
KanLicense system, which would require four hours of development work and two hours of
testing, for a total cost of $250 from the State General Fund.
The Honorable Mike Thompson, Chairperson
Page 2—SB 250

The Kansas Department of Transportation states that the bill would reduce the revenues
into the State Highway Fund by $169,112 in FY 2024, which would be a negligible fiscal effect
on the Eisenhower Legacy Transportation Program. Any fiscal effect associated with SB 250 is
not reflected in The FY 2024 Governor’s Budget Report.
