Beating the CHP deadline?

The Republican Party Chair is asking for a list of permit holders.1

A clerk of court is refusing, in part because a bill passed (but not yet enacted) would bar release of individual records.2

1. VCOG argued against the bill that will close off the permit applications. We said it would create a system of government administration and regulation that had no outside oversight. We also noted that  advocates, politicians and education groups would find the information useful for contacting those with a common interest.
2. When the bill passed, the General Assembly could have inserted an emergency clause so it would go into effect immediately. They did not. Therefore, the law goes into effect July 1. Up until June 30, the law  says applications must be released (maybe not a list, but the individual applications).


...especially when the law he's referring to hasn't taken effect, yet.

Where's that in the statutes?
