Today, the Wisconsin Assembly passed Assembly Bill 28, the CCW renewal reform bill, with a 92-7 vote. Additionally, they voted concurrence on its companion bill, Senate Bill 7. Senate Bill 7 will now go to Governor Scott Walker (R) for his approval. Please contact Governor Walker and urge him to sign Senate Bill 7 into law!
Both SB7 and 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.
