It annoys the hell out of me that Texas honors CHL licenses from many non-reciprocal states, including Nebraska, Rhode Island, New York, Hawaii, Washington, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maryland, California, Connecticut, Iowa, Nevada, and Colorado.
Does this anger anyone else???
Why does Texas honor non-reciprocal State CHL licenses? The only logical reasoning is that Texas is attempting to set a trend. But I hope there is an expiration to this policy for states that do not reciprocate. It is patently unfair.
Once an avid traveller, particularly to Mexico, Central America, and the Carribean, I am now inclined to travel only in the U.S. (and possibly U.S. Territories) for awhile due to the current state of the world. I was hoping to see Puerto Rico, California, New York, Hawaii, an Colorado on the reciprocity list, but am shocked to see none of them recipocrate! (I know, Puerto Rico doesn't even have CHL).
Well, I guess Florida, Utah, New Mexico, and Alaska will benefit from my hard-earned tourist dollar. Screw the rest of them. Hell, I might even visit Kansas, Alabama, Indiana, Deleware, South Dakota, Missouri, Michigan, Pennsylvania, South Caraloina, North Dakota, Montana, Georgia, Mississippi, Idaho, North Carolina, Wyoming, Kentucky, Tennessee, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. They deserve our loyalty too.
The Trade is Angry about these non-reciprocal states.
