     (9) An individual, after submitting an application and paying

Beginning December 1, 2015, the county clerk, department of state

 

police, county sheriff, local police agency, or other entity shall

 

not provide a receipt under this subsection unless the individual

disqualification is not issued within 45 days after the date this

 

receipt was issued, this receipt shall serve as a concealed pistol

 

license for the individual named in the receipt when carried with

 

an official state-issued driver license or personal identification

 

card. The receipt is valid as a license until a license or notice

 

of statutory disqualification is issued by the county clerk. This

 

receipt does not exempt the individual named in the receipt from

 

complying with all applicable laws for the purchase of firearms.".

 

     (10) The fingerprints shall be taken, under subsection (9), in

 

a manner prescribed by the department of state police. The

 

fingerprints taken by a county clerk, county sheriff, local police

 

agency, or other entity shall be immediately forwarded to the

 

department of state police for comparison with fingerprints already

 

on file with the department of state police. The department of

 

state police shall immediately forward the fingerprints to the

 

Federal Bureau of Investigation. Until November 30, 2015, within 10

 

days after receiving a report of the fingerprints from the Federal

 


Bureau of Investigation, the department of state police shall

 

provide a copy to the submitting sheriff's department or local

 

police agency as appropriate and the clerk of the appropriate

 

concealed weapon licensing board. Beginning December 1, 2015,

 

within 5 business days of completing the verification under

 

subsection (6), the department shall send the county clerk a list

 

of an applicant's statutory disqualifications under this act. Until

 

November 30, 2015, and except as provided in subsection (14), the

subsection. Beginning December 1, 2015, if an individual's

 

fingerprints are not classifiable, the department of state police

 

shall, at no charge, take the individual's fingerprints again or

 

provide for the comparisons under this subsection to be conducted

 

through alternative means. Until November 30, 2015, the concealed

 

weapon licensing board may deny a license if an individual's

 

fingerprints are not classifiable by the Federal Bureau of

 

Investigation. Beginning December 1, 2015, the county clerk shall

 

not issue a notice of statutory disqualification because an

 

individual's fingerprints are not classifiable by the Federal

 

Bureau of Investigation.

 

     (11) Until November 30, 2015, the concealed weapon licensing

shall send by first-class mail a notice of statutory

 

disqualification for a license under this act to an applicant if

 

the applicant is not qualified under subsection (7) to receive that

based upon an application that contains a material false statement

 

is void from the date the license is issued.

 

     (13) Until November 30, 2015, and subject to subsections (10)

 

and (14), the concealed weapon licensing board shall issue or deny

 

issuance of a license within 45 days after the concealed weapon

 

licensing board receives the fingerprint comparison report provided

subsection (10), the department of state police shall complete the

 

verification required under subsection (6) and the county clerk

 

shall issue a license or a notice of statutory disqualification

 

within 45 days after the date the applicant has classifiable

 

fingerprints taken under subsection (9). Beginning December 1,

 

2015, 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. Until November 30, 2015, if the concealed weapon

 

licensing board denies issuance of a license to carry a concealed

 

pistol, or beginning December 1, 2015, if the county clerk issues a

 

notice of statutory disqualification, the concealed weapon

 


licensing board or the county clerk, as appropriate, shall within 5

     (14) Until November 30, 2015, if the fingerprint comparison

 

report is not received by the concealed weapon licensing board

 

within 60 days after the fingerprint report is forwarded to the

 

department of state police by the Federal Bureau of Investigation,

 

the concealed weapon licensing board shall issue a temporary

 


license to carry a concealed pistol to the applicant if the

 

applicant is otherwise qualified for a license. Until November 30,

 

2015, a temporary license issued under this section is valid for

 

180 days or until the concealed weapon licensing board receives the

 

fingerprint comparison report provided under subsection (10) and

     (15) If an individual licensed under this act to carry a

 

concealed pistol moves to a different county within this state, his

 

or her license remains valid until it expires or is otherwise

 

suspended or revoked under this act. Beginning December 1, 2015, an

 

individual may notify a county clerk that he or she has moved to a

 

different address within this state for the purpose of receiving

 

the notice under section 5l(1). A license to carry a concealed

 


pistol that is lost, stolen, or defaced may be replaced by the

clerk shall deposit a replacement fee under this subsection in the

 

concealed pistol licensing fund of that county created in section

 

5x.

revoked, the license is forfeited and the individual shall return

 

the license to the county clerk forthwith by mail or in person.

 

Beginning December 1, 2015, the county clerk shall retain a

 

suspended or revoked license as an official record 1 year after the

 

expiration of the license, unless the license is reinstated or a

 

new license is issued. Beginning December 1, 2015, the county clerk

 

shall notify the department of state police if a license is

 

suspended or revoked. Beginning December 1, 2015, the department of

 

state police shall enter that suspension or revocation into the law

 

enforcement information network. An individual who fails to return

 

a license as required under this subsection after he or she was

 

notified that his or her license was suspended or revoked is guilty
