  • Legislation approved by a House committee would allow individuals with a license to carry a firearm to renew their license online.
     
    House Bill 1489, by state Rep. Mike Ritze, is intended to make license renewal more convenient, he said.
     
    “I consider this legislation to be a government modernization bill because it basically puts another licensing process online for the convenience of all Oklahomans applying for the license,” said Ritze, R-Broken Arrow. “With any luck, one day individuals can obtain all licenses they need online rather than by going to some office and waiting in a long line.”
     
    The measure was approved 11-1 in the Oklahoma House of Representatives Economic Development and Financial Services Committee. If approved by the House Calendar Committee, it will be available for a hearing on the House floor.
