PA NOW recognizes UT permit. UPDATE

THIS HAS CHANGED.  PA MADE A NEW AGREEMENT SO GO TO THE PA PAGE TO LOOK UP THE NEW LAW.

UPDATE:  The PA AG page finally has some information about this.  I don’t know what the changes in the UT law are that they are talking about.

Pennsylvania has received notification from Utah officials that their law has changed and no longer complies with Pennsylvania law. Utah is now a Category 4 state. Holders of Pennsylvania and Utah permits will no longer be able to have their permits honored in each other’s states. Likewise, individuals from other states holding Utah permits will not have their permits honored in Pennsylvania. Pa. permit holders may still apply for a non-resident permit for use in the state of Utah. The reason for this change was a recent determination that Utah’s relevant statutory provisions are no longer compatible with Pennsylvania law. Pa. law requires that the statutes be substantially similar in order for the Attorney General to grant reciprocity. Finally, please know that Utah and Pennsylvania are currently negotiating a formal reciprocity agreement (Category 1) that when agreed to would permit residents of Pa. and Utah to have their permits recognized in each other’s states.

PA no longer recognizes UT permit. In an unannounced move, the PA AG, a Bloomburg follower, no longer recognizes the UT permit. The only place that I have been able to find that it is no longer recognized is on the UT website: http://publicsafety.utah.gov/bci/FAQother.html Look under: The following states DO NOT recognize the Utah concealed firearm permit.  (Heads up from NRA NEWS, 5/12/14)
