Concealed carry bill resurrected

MADISON, Wis. Supporters of carrying concealed guns will resurrect their fight in the Legislature.

Senator Dave Zien (ZEEN) of Eau Claire says he'll reintroduce the bill by July.

This one will have private companies and law enforcement organizations issuing permits instead of county sheriffs.

The previous concealed carry bill vetoed by the governor required sheriff's departments to do background checks of applicants. But sheriffs complained they didn't have the time or resources to do so.

The new proposal gives the responsibility for issuing permits to another group, such as the state Department of Justice, the union representing state troopers or private security firms.

The cost of a permit in the latest proposal has been dropped from 113 dollars to 75.
