They already have the training and background checks done for the provisional permit. And then the current "renewal fee" on the proposed bill would make sense.


I need to visit with the sponsor about intent and desired effect about transitioning from the provisional to the regular permit. Ideally we avoid a lapse.

I looked around the nation for reciprocity and there have been instances where states lost reciprocity because they had also lowered the age from 21 to 18. Washington just dropped Tennessee for that reason even though majority of 18 year olds still can't carry in TN. Seven other states also won't recognize those 18-20 year olds either but still anyone 21 or over would be good to go. I would bet anything that the same thing would happen to our permit as well. For states that don't honor our permit I just don't go there plain and simple, but it's definitely good to have many options. It is nice to have reciprocity with other states no doubt and I am all for lowering the age to 18 as I believe it is the right thing to do, I just also want some thoughts on that.

That's specifically why this bill isn't altering our existing permit to lower the age. Instead, its creating a special, "provisional" permit for those in that age bracket. It would be a separate permit from the regular Utah one, so states could choose to honor it (or not) without any impact on those with the "normal" permit.

Don't really know how I missed that while reading it. Guess I was really tired or something. That is really cool that they are going to leave our current permit alone for 21 and older. I really hope this passes as a couple of my coworkers would probably get one as they are below 21. Thanks for the clarification. :D :D
