Thank you for your message on HB 3359 – the ammunition microstamping bill from the previous legislative cycle. I looked up the bill and it appears that it had never made it to a vote within the Juciciary committee, which is the first step in the long process of becoming a law. I have neither seen nor heard anything to suggest that it will be re-introduced during this session.
If it is re-introduced, however, know that I will follow the issue closely and take note of your concerns. It appears that there would be considerable costs associated with setting up the infrastructure in the Department of Licensing, as well as for merchants and consumers. I would need to see an updated look at the costs and effects if the bill were re-introduced this year.
Thank you again for contacting me, and always feel free to send me your questions and comments!
