On the 'Weapons Carry License Section' page link to 'License Process By County' , Newton County has changed their fee schedule. When applying at the probate court, they have upped the background fee to $30 (from $15), plus the $40 license fee and the $5 fingerprint fee or a total of $75 (was $60). I redid my GFL on Feb 11th, 2011. Luckily I took more cash than I thought I would need and had enough for the increase (!).
