FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- A bill aimed at creating an online application for Kentuckians wanting licenses to carry concealed weapons has been passed by the state Senate.

Republican Sen. Sara Beth Gregory said Wednesday her bill is meant to reduce the backlog as tens of thousands of people submit paper applications for concealed carry licenses. She says the goal is to reduce the waiting time from about two months now to about two weeks with the online version.

The bill passed the Senate on a 37-0 vote. It now goes to the House.

The online process would also be available to renew licenses.

The bill calls for a $70 fee for online applications.

The current paper application process, which would still be available, has a $60 fee.
