JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — A Missouri Senate panel has scheduled four public hearings on new procedures for people seeking driver’s licenses and concealed-gun identification cards.

The Senate Appropriations Committee plans to hold hearings Friday in Springfield and Saturday in Kansas City. Additional hearings are scheduled for 1 to 3 p.m. April 26 at Cape Girardeau Public Library in Cape Girardeau and April 27 in O’Fallon.

Committee Chairman Kurt Schaefer said he wants to hear from the public before lawmakers decide on the budgets for the departments of Revenue and Public Safety.

Republican lawmakers have raised privacy concerns about a new Revenue Department procedure that scans personal documents of license applicants to be kept on state computers. They also have criticized the Highway Patrol for providing data on concealed gun permit holders to a federal Social Security fraud investigator.
