I am hearing Gov. Pritzker signed SB1139 requiring CCL expiration dates on renewal cards to coincide with expiration date on current card.  It also removes requirement of parental/guardian signature for FOID cards for applicants under the age of 21 if applicant is active duty military.

I moved HJCA0039 Con Amend - Firearm Reg Funds and added HJRCA0040 Con Amend - Firearm Reg Funds to this oppose list.  Both amendments allow for payment of Workers Compensation Claims and investigations related to worker safety.  The Comp claims alone could easily bankrupt the fund.  Further, direct payment of work related injury claims is in no way the responsibility of gun owners alone.  If the state wishes to impose regulations on gun owners then it is the responsibility of every tax payer to foot the bills related to enforcement in the same way the cost of enforcing traffic laws is paid for by everyone, even non-drivers.
