Firearms and Ammunition Excise Tax Improvement Act Moves Forward in the Senate


Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), joined by Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.),  Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) and a bipartisan group of senators, offered the Firearms Fairness and Affordability Act of 2010 (S. 632) as an amendment (No. 4444) to the Small Business Lending Act (HR 5297), which is now pending in the Senate.  Earlier this week, the House passed (412-6) the Firearms Excise Tax Improvement Act (HR 5552).

Sens. Baucus was the original sponsor of S. 632 and Sen. Crapo the lead co-sponsor.

NSSF encourages you to contact your Senator at 202-224-3121 and urge them to support Amendment 4444 to HR 5297.
