Illinois House Committee Approves Money For Concealed Carry Program

Concealed Carry

An Illinois House committee has approved $33 million to set up the program needed for regulating the carrying of concealed firearms.

The legislation gives the Illinois State Police authority to use money from $150 concealed-carry permit fees to pay for the additional staff and equipment necessary to set up the program.

Permits will be available in January. State Police officials expect as much as 300,000 applicants in the first year.

Lawmakers approved concealed carry last summer after a federal appeals court said Illinois' last-in-the-nation ban was unconstitutional.
