House Bill 1927 (Permitless Carry) does not repeal the License to Carry a Handgun Program, established by Government Code, Chapter 411, Subchapter H.

The department is still required to process applications, conduct background checks, and produce a laminated license for those who qualify.

(House Bill 1927 is effective September 1, 2021.)
