Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act. Provides that for any appeal permitted under the Act to the Director of the Illinois State Police for failure to act on a Firearm Owner's Identification Card application within 30 days or its denial, seizure, or revocation, the Director shall either grant or deny the appeal within 60 days of the receipt of the appeal. Provides that if the appeal is granted, the Director shall return the aggrieved party's Firearm Owner's Identification Card to the aggrieved party, or issue him or her a new Firearm Owner's Identification Card, as the case may be, no later than 7 business days after the appeal is granted. Provides that if the appeal is denied, the Director shall set forth in writing the specific reasons for the denial and shall cause the written denial to be mailed to the aggrieved party no later than 7 business days after the appeal is denied. Provides that if the Director fails to either grant or deny the appeal within 60 days of the receipt of the appeal, the appeal shall be considered granted, and the Director shall return the aggrieved party's Firearm Owner's Identification Card or issue him or her a new Firearm Owner's Identification Card, as the case may be, no later than 67 days from the date that the appeal was received. Provides that a denial shall be considered a final administrative order, regardless of whether there was a formal hearing in which evidence was taken, and the aggrieved party may seek judicial review of the final administrative order in accordance with the provisions of the Administrative Review Law and the Act. Provides that if administrative review is taken and if the circuit court then finds that the Director denied the appeal without reasonable cause, the circuit court may award the aggrieved party court costs and a reasonable attorney's fee to be paid by the State. Nothing herein limits the contempt power of the circuit court. Provides that when the word "shall" appears in this provision, it shall be construed as being mandatory and not discretionary.
