Diane V. Grendell News

State Rep. Diane Grendell (R-Chesterland) is pleased to announce her concealed carry extension bill, HB 764, has passed both chambers after being added to House Bill 614. Now pending Governor DeWine’s signature, CCW holders whose licenses have expired March 9, 2020, until June 30, 2021, are extended until June 30, 2021, or 90 days after the license would have expired, whichever is later.

The bill’s provisions include extending valid CCW permits, designating additional hours during which county residents may file applications for concealed handgun licenses with their sheriff, and lifting Ohio’s county adjacency rule.

“After working on this issue with local sheriffs, I’m pleased that the Ohio General Assembly was able to respond to the pressing issue of CCW application/renewal backlogs as a result of the COVID-19 closures our state faced,” said Grendell. “Thank you to the original co-sponsors on my legislation.”

Grendell’s original co-sponsors include:

  • Steve Hambley
  • Haraz Ghanbari
  • George Lang
  • Scott Wiggam
