After working on this for a year, I just received a call from the Texas Attorney General's office informing me the Governor of Texas is prepared to issue a proclamation stating that Texas will recognize and honor carry licenses issued by the State of Illinois.

 

I started this effort when Texas changed their laws concerning reciprocity and recognition of CCLs from other states.  At first there was resistance from lower level administration officials but I pointed out the changes in Texas law and insisted that Illinois CCLs qualified for recognition.  After many conversations up through the chain of command, it appears our efforts have resulted in a proclamation on the Governor's desk, awaiting his signature and announcement.

 

The announcement is expected within the month, and possibly as soon as today!

 

God bless Texas!

That's awesome news! It's redundant for me personally, since I have other licenses that already cover Texas, but kudos for the efforts and helping getting that taken care of.

best news of the day! The map is filling up for those with Illinois permits :clap: what about FL? Also I noticed on usacarry's reciprocity map that West Virginia & Maine don't recognize the IL permit, is this moot since they are constitutional carry or is that for residents only?

Sweet! Thanks Molly. Even though I have our license and Florida it's nice to know that Texas will soon be added to Illinois.
