Rep. Avery Bourne seeks to reduce Concealed Carry Fee for Veterans

Representative Avery Bourne (R-Raymond) is sponsoring legislation (HB6111) that would provide one-half priced concealed carry permit fees for veterans in Illinois.

According to a statement released by Representative Bourne, the cost for a new license or renewal for Illinois residents is $150 for five years. The discount from the legislation would be applied to the cost of those new licenses and renewal fees.

“This bill is a way to give back to those who have served and sacrificed so much for our freedoms,” Rep. Bourne explains. WAND has the story.
