Awesome! As a nonresident living in Lake County I'm very happy to see this. Not only does it mean my Utah resident and Virginia nonresident permits will be honored, but I can also get an Illinois permit. That's a huge win for me in every way.
I'm very happy to see the law require the State Police to issue the permit within 30 days of the application being submitted. Many years ago jurisdictions in Virginia were deliberately stalling on using permits. The problem wasn't solved until the courts made it state law that permits be issued within 45 days.
