As a CHL carrier in 2 states I'm in favor of only needing 1 CHL. That being said I'm from WA state and here they have no requirements to get a CHL other than the federal background check. No safety course, nothing. And worse than anything else my CHL doesn't even have a picture on it. If someone were to get a hold of it I'm avg height and weight.. Whose to say they aren't me. States laws need to be addressed. I'll be contacting my state reps as well. I'm all for CHL but safety first.
