Wisconsin: CCW Renewal Legislation Passes Committee with Unanimous Vote

Yesterday, the Assembly Committee on State Affairs unanimously passed Assembly Bill 28 with a 14-0 vote.  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. 

The work of Chairman Swearingen, Vice-Chair Tauchen and the entire committee should be commended.  AB 28 is now waiting to be considered by the full Assembly.  Please stay tuned to your email inbox and www.nraila.org for further updates on AB 28 as it is scheduled for a vote on the Assembly floor.
