ISRA Alert:
HB3500 Passes Both Houses

Dear ISRA members,

HB3500 passed both the House and the Senate today (Passed the Senate with 42 votes).  HB3500 amends the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) to keep your FOID (Firearm Owners ID) information private.  Please see: http://ilga.gov/legislation/BillStatus.asp?DocNum=3500&GAID=11&DocTypeID=HB&LegId=60929&SessionID=84&GA=97

HB3500  will now go to the Governors Desk.

We are urging you to make contact with the Governors office and to politely request he sign HB3500 into law.   Governor Quinn can be reached at 217-782-0244 (Springfield Office) or at 312-814-2121 (Chicago Office).  Further, the Office of the Governor can be emailed here:  http://www2.illinois.gov/gov/Pages/ContacttheGovernor.aspx

The Illinois State Rifle Association would like to thank those who have contacted your State Senators about HB3500 in the past week. 

The ISRA is the state's leading advocate of safe, lawful and responsible firearms ownership.  For more than a century, the ISRA has represented the interests of millions of law-abiding Illinois firearm owners.
