• This bill would repeal the excise taxes on firearms, ammunition, bows, and arrows, as well as the excise tax on transferring and making firearms under the National Firearm Act. Instead of using these excise taxes to fund Fish and Wildlife Restoration through the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act, the bill would instead establish a Wildlife Conservation and Restoration Subaccount, capped at $800M annually, funded through oil and gas revenues.
