Statement of Administration Policy: H.R. 1025 - Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act
(Schumer (D) New York and 155 others)
The Administration strongly supports H.R. 1025.
H.R. 1025 represents a vital first step in reducing the terrible toll of gun-related violence in our Nation. This legislation requiring a waiting period and background check before the purchase of a handgun is simply common sense. It is long past time that the Congress passed it.
H.R. 1025 would increase receipts; therefore, it is subject to the pay-as-you-go requirements of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA) of 1990. OMB's preliminary scoring estimate of this bill are presented below. Final scoring of this legislation may deviate from these estimates.
(receipts in millions)
