Licensing Program Is Performing Well; Operations and Service Can Be Improved, Report No. 00-22, December 2000
Full report in PDF format

The Department of  State Licensing Program provides a public benefit through licensing of professions and individuals carrying concealed weapons.  However, creating separate trust funds and improvements to the cost allocation system would improve accountability for program revenues.  In addition, electronic transmission of civil fingerprint information would improve the background check process.
