    A four month backlog? Curious how many applications they have to process.

    What a poorly written article.


    Why would they stop processing new applications? Wouldn't it make more sense to have said they will stop accepting new applications so they have time to catch up? If they stopped processing new applications how would they ever clear the back log? And there are spelling errors.

    Yeah, that's what passes for journalism these days.

    Here is the release from the sheriff, they are doing what you suggested:

    I sent my application in late January, got a response mid February, and actually get to talk to them mid May. 45 days from then I should have my permit. 7 months!

    I would love to know how many sheriffs are actually working on getting people threw the CHL process in Multnomah county. Not enough it seems.

    I wonder why they hire temporary help? The salaries would more than be covered by the fees they charge for a CHL.

    I faxed mine at the end of Feb. got my appointment letter a couple of weeks later for the 16th of April.
    I went in yesterday for Fingerprints and Picture taking.

    They said it will take four to five weeks to receive the actual permit.

    Cannot be early enough.

    I am also on week 6 of waiting for Utah permit...

    Guess that saves them from having to run their own background check! When I got my OR permit in Multnomah Co they didn't require that. I did have to have a letter from the state Health Dept saying I wasn't adjudicated mentally defective and a letter from my employer saying it was OK. No idea why the letter from my employer since I was employed by WA state and never travelled in OR for anything work related.

    I finally received my Utah permit. 67 days after the application was received and 48 days after they charged my card.
    Not too bad considering current backlog.

    Sent my application in early January, got a response late January, and talked to them in mid March. Got my license in the mail mid April.

    Now I wait for my Washington permit, which I was told is being "processed" and is still a few weeks out.
