Governor Quinn Takes Bill Action

CHICAGO – July 2, 2011. Governor Pat Quinn today took action on the following bill:

Bill No.: HB 3500
Amends the Freedom of Information Act to provide that the names and information of people who have applied for or received Firearm Owner’s Identification Cards under the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act are exempt from inspection and copying.
An Act Concerning: Safety
Action: Signed
Effective Date: Immediately

“As Governor, I have made increasing openness and transparency in government one of my top priorities. It is essential to have an open and transparent state government; however, it should not come at the expense of the public’s safety. This bill has the support of the Illinois State Police because it ensures that individuals who have FOID cards or who have applied for FOID cards are protected from having their personal information made public, which could make them vulnerable to potential crimes and jeopardize public safety.”
