THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF MICHIGAN ENACT:

 

     Sec. 5a. (1) A license to carry a concealed pistol issued by a

 

concealed weapon licensing board before December 1, 2015 is valid

 

and remains in effect until the expiration of that license or as

 

otherwise provided by law.

 

     (2) The county clerk is responsible for all of the following:

 

     (a) Storing and maintaining all records related to issuing a

 

license or notice of statutory disqualification in that county.

 

     (b) Issuing licenses to carry a concealed pistol.

 

     (c) Issuing notices of statutory disqualification, notices of

 

suspensions, and notices of revocations.

 

     (3) The department of state police shall verify under section

 

5b(6) whether an applicant for a license to carry a concealed

 

pistol is eligible to receive a license to carry a concealed

 

pistol.

 

     (4) A county clerk shall issue an emergency license to carry a

 

concealed pistol to an individual if the individual has obtained a

 

personal protection order issued under section 2950 or 2950a of the

 

revised judicature act of 1961, 1961 PA 236, MCL 600.2950 and

 

600.2950a, or to that individual if a county sheriff determines

 

that there is clear and convincing evidence to believe the safety

 

of the individual or the safety of a member of the individual's

 

family or household is endangered by the individual's inability to

 

immediately obtain a license to carry a concealed pistol. Clear and

 

convincing evidence includes, but is not limited to, an application

 

for a personal protection order, police reports and other law

 

enforcement records, or written, audio, or visual evidence of


threats to the individual or member of the individual's family or

 

household. A county clerk shall only issue an emergency license to

 

carry a concealed pistol to an individual who has obtained a

 

personal protection order if the individual is eligible under

 

section 5b(7)(d), (e), (f), (h), (i), (j), (k), and (m) to receive

 

a license based on a criminal record check through the law

 

enforcement information network conducted by the department of

 

state police. The county sheriff shall only issue a determination

 

under this subsection to an individual who is eligible under

 

section 5b(7)(d), (e), (f), (h), (i), (j), (k), and (m) to receive

 

a license based on a criminal record check through the law

 

enforcement information network and only after the county sheriff

 

has taken the individual's fingerprints in compliance with section

 

5b(9). A county sheriff shall notify the county clerk if the county

 

sheriff determines that an individual is not eligible under section

 

5b(7)(d), (e), (f), (h), (i), (j), (k), or (m) to receive a

 

license. An emergency license must be on a form provided by the

 

department of state police. An individual who applies for an

 

emergency license shall, within 10 business days after applying for

 

an emergency license, complete a pistol training course under

 

section 5j and apply for a license under section 5b. If an

 

individual who applies for an emergency license does not complete a

 

pistol training course under section 5j and apply for a license

 

under section 5b within 10 business days after applying for an

 

emergency license, that individual's emergency license is no longer

 

valid. A county sheriff who makes a determination under this

 

section, performs a criminal record check, and takes the


applicant's fingerprints may charge a fee not to exceed $15.00. A

 

county clerk may charge a fee not to exceed $10.00 for printing an

 

emergency license. A county clerk shall deposit a fee collected by

 

the county clerk under this subsection in the concealed pistol

 

licensing fund of that county created in section 5x. Except as

 

otherwise provided in this subsection, an emergency license is

 

valid for 45 days or until the county clerk issues a notice of

 

statutory disqualification, whichever occurs first. Except as

 

otherwise provided in this act, an emergency license is, for all

 

other purposes of this act, a license to carry a concealed pistol.

 

The county clerk shall include an indication on the license if an

 

individual is exempt from the prohibitions against carrying a

 

concealed pistol on premises described in section 5o if the

 

applicant provides acceptable proof that he or she qualifies for

 

that exemption. An individual shall not obtain more than 1

 

emergency license in any 5-year period. If a county clerk issues a

 

notice of statutory disqualification to an applicant who received

 

an emergency license under this section, the applicant shall

 

immediately surrender the emergency license to the county clerk by

 

mail or in person if that emergency license has not expired. An

 

individual who fails to surrender a license as required by this

 

subsection after he or she is notified of a statutory

 

disqualification is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by

 

imprisonment for not more than 93 days or a fine of not more than

 

$500.00, or both.

 

     (5) The legislative service bureau shall compile the firearms

 

laws of this state, including laws that apply to carrying a


concealed pistol, and shall provide copies of the compilation in an

 

electronic format to the department of state police. The department

 

of state police shall provide a copy of the compiled laws to each

 

county clerk in this state. The department of state police shall

 

also provide forms to appeal any notice of statutory

 

disqualification, or suspension or revocation of a license under

 

this act. The department of state police shall distribute copies of

 

the compilation and forms required under this subsection in an

 

electronic format to each county clerk. The county clerk shall

 

distribute a copy of the compilation and forms at no charge to each

 

individual who applies for a license to carry a concealed pistol at

 

the time the application is submitted. The county clerk may

 

distribute copies of the compilation and forms required under this

 

subsection in an electronic format. The county clerk shall require

 

the applicant to sign a written statement acknowledging that he or

 

she has received a copy of the compilation and forms provided under

 

this subsection. An individual is not eligible to receive a license

 

to carry a concealed pistol until he or she has signed the

 

statement.

 

     Sec. 5b. (1) To obtain a license to carry a concealed pistol,

 

an individual shall apply to the county clerk in the county in

 

which the individual resides. The applicant shall file the

 

application with the county clerk in the county in which the

 

applicant resides during the county clerk's normal business hours.

 

The application must be on a form provided by the director of the

 

department of state police and allow the applicant to designate

 

whether the applicant seeks an emergency license. The applicant


shall sign the application under oath. The county clerk or his or

 

her representative shall administer the oath. An application under

 

this subsection is not considered complete until an applicant

 

submits all of the required information and fees and has

 

fingerprints taken under subsection (9). An application under this

 

subsection is considered withdrawn if an applicant does not have

 

fingerprints taken under subsection (9) within 45 days of the date

 

an application is filed under this subsection. A completed

 

application and all receipts issued under this section expire 1

 

year from the date of application. The county clerk shall issue the

 

applicant a receipt for his or her application at the time the

 

application is submitted containing the name of the applicant, the

 

applicant's state-issued driver license or personal identification

 

card number, the date and time the receipt is issued, the amount

 

paid, the name of the county in which the receipt is issued, an

pistol in this state.". The application must contain all of the

has ever been convicted in this state or elsewhere for any of the

except as set forth in subsection (1) or as otherwise provided for


in this act. The application form must contain a conspicuous

 

warning that the application is executed under oath and that

 

intentionally making a material false statement on the application

 

is a felony punishable by imprisonment for not more than 4 years or

 

a fine of not more than $2,500.00, or both.

 

     (3) An individual who intentionally makes a material false

 

statement on an application under subsection (1) is guilty of a

 

felony punishable by imprisonment for not more than 4 years or a

 

fine of not more than $2,500.00, or both.

 

     (4) The county clerk shall retain a copy of each application

 

for a license to carry a concealed pistol as an official record.

 

One year after the expiration of a concealed pistol license, the

 

county clerk may destroy the record and a name index of the record

 

shall be maintained in the database created in section 5e.

 

     (5) Each applicant shall pay a nonrefundable application and

 

licensing fee of $100.00 by any method of payment accepted by that

 

county for payments of other fees and penalties. Except as provided

 

in subsection (9), no other charge, fee, cost, or assessment,

 

including any local charge, fee, cost, or assessment, is required

 

of the applicant except as specifically authorized in this act. The

 

applicant shall pay the application and licensing fee to the

 

county. The county treasurer shall deposit $26.00 of each

 

application and licensing fee collected under this section in the

 

concealed pistol licensing fund of that county created in section

 

5x. The county treasurer shall forward the balance remaining to the

 

state treasurer. The state treasurer shall deposit the balance of

 

the fee in the general fund to the credit of the department of


state police. The department of state police shall use the money

reimburse the Federal Bureau of Investigation for the costs

 

associated with processing fingerprints submitted under this act.

 

The balance of the money received under this act must be credited

     (6) The department of state police shall verify the

 

requirements of subsection (7)(d), (e), (f), (h), (i), (j), (k),

national instant criminal background check system and shall report

 

to the county clerk all statutory disqualifications, if any, under

 

this act that apply to an applicant.

 

     (7) The county clerk shall issue and shall send by first-class

 

mail a license to an applicant to carry a concealed pistol within

clerk shall waive the 6-month residency requirement for an

petitioner for a personal protection order issued under section

 

2950 or 2950a of the revised judicature act of 1961, 1961 PA 236,

 

MCL 600.2950 and 600.2950a, or if the county sheriff determines

 

that there is clear and convincing evidence to believe that the


safety of the applicant or the safety of a member of the

 

applicant's family or household is endangered by the applicant's

 

inability to immediately obtain a license to carry a concealed

 

pistol. If the applicant holds a valid concealed pistol license

 

issued by another state at the time the applicant's residency in
