On Wednesday, February 15, at 10:00am, the Assembly Committee on State Affairs is holding an Executive Session on Assembly Bill 28. AB 28 would revise current CCW statutes to ensure that when a law-abiding CCW holder renews their license before it expires, the license is valid for five years from the expiration date of the license being renewed. Currently, when a CCW holder renews their license before it expires, it becomes valid for five years from the date of issuance, rather than the expiration date of the license being renewed. AB 28 is expected to pass with strong bipartisan support. Please contact members of the Assembly State Affairs Committee and thank them for their support of Assembly Bill 28. Also, thank Rep. Rob Swearingen, the Committee Chairman, for his leadership and quick action on this legislation.
The companion bill to Assembly Bill 28, Senate Bill 7, is likely to receive a hearing in the Senate Judiciary and Public Safety Committee very soon. The Committee Chairman is Senator Van Wanggaard, he is a co-sponsor of the bill and has pledged his support. NRA members and Second Amendment supporters are encouraged to reach out to his office to thank him for his ongoing support and to urge him for a public hearing on Senate Bill 7.
Your NRA-ILA will continue to keep you updated as this legislation advances through the legislature.
