I'd be finding out what idiot politician(s) are behind this robbery.
The funding "sweep" was part of a broader $600million raid on trust funds set up to finance dedicated government services or programs. Lawmakers chose to use the money instead to help pay operating expenses for schools, health care and other government programs.
They need to be exposed.

Gov. Charlie Crist to veto 'raid' on concealed weapons fees - South Florida - MiamiHerald.com
Gov. Charlie Crist plans to veto a $6 million transfer, or what critics call a 'raid,' on a fund backed by fees that people pay to seek or renew their concealed weapons permits.

Herald/Times Tallahassee Bureau
TALLAHASSEE -- The $66.5 billion state budget Gov. Charlie Crist will sign Wednesday is likely to appease at least one vocal Florida constituency: gun owners.
Crist will sign a budget balanced with $2 billion in tax and fee increases, including a dollar-a-pack increase in the cigarette tax, the first such tax increase since 1990. But he plans to veto a $6 million transfer, or what critics call a ''raid,'' on a fund backed by fees that people pay to seek or renew their concealed weapons permits, which are valid for seven years.
''I'm inclined that way,'' said Crist, noting that he met last week with Marion Hammer, the longtime lobbyist for the National Rifle Association who led a well-organized, grass-roots effort to oppose the transfer. ``She is a tremendous advocate, and I am a strong supporter of the Second Amendment.''
My daughter who lives in Tallahassee and works for the State of Florida sent me an e-mail about 10 minutes ago to inform me that the Governor did, in fact, veto the 6 million dollar raid on the CWL department. Maybe now the processing of Florida CWLs will speed up.

PROTECTING GUN RIGHTS
Governor Crist vetoed the transfer of $6 million away from Florida’s Concealed Weapons and Firearms Licensing Program. For the past 22 years, this self-sustaining program has been funded by fees paid by applicants for concealed weapons permits. Governor Crist reiterated his commitment to protecting individual gun rights for Floridians consistent with the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution.

How about that. The people spoke and the Governor listened. That's the power of e-mail, letters and phone calls.

I just went through the whole thread, but didn't see one reference as to which "lawmaker" inserted this language into the budget. Anyone know which office it came from? That would be the real knowledge.
