DENVER (AP) -- Gun owners with concealed weapons permits would have an easier time renewing their permits under a bill that is winning rare bipartisan support in Colorado.

The bill allows gun owners to renew their permits in the counties where they live. Currently they're required to renew concealed carry permits through the county sheriff who issued the permit. That can require long trips for people who move.

The measure has Democratic sponsors and got a unanimous 13-0 vote Thursday in the House Local Government Committee. Most gun proposals bring sharp party-line disagreements. The bill awaits a vote by the full House.

Fiscal analysts say the bill won't affect the state budget, but could affect various counties as some lose $50 renewal fees while others gain.
