Wisconsin: CCW Renewal Reform Bills Pass Assembly!

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 7Senate 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. 

Thank you to all members who reached out to their state legislators in support of these two bills.  Your NRA-ILA would like to give a special thanks to state Senator Devin LeMahieu (R – Oostburg) and state Representative Mike Kuglitsch (R – New Berlin) for their leadership on these bills.  Stay tuned to your email inbox and www.nraila.org for further updates on these bills.
