The Illinois State Police has filed emergency rules to address renewal relief of Firearm Owner Identification (FOID) cards and Concealed Carry Licenses (CCL) during the COVID-19 pandemic.
State Representative Bryant of Murphysboro sent a letter to Governor JB Pritzker on April 6th asking that he take executive action to extend expiration dates for FOID cards as well as CCL’s. She says she’s pleased to see a response for relief so quickly.
These new rules are effective immediately. You can see a full list of the new rules at isp.state.il.us under ISP News.
Rep. Bryant says if your renewal is under review, print a paper copy or save that proof to your phone as to not take any chances while carrying your firearm or buying ammunition.
