H.R. 1417 would allow the National Law Enforcement Museum (NLEM), which is privately operated on federal land in Washington, D.C., to acquire firearms of any type for display in museum exhibits. The bill also would exempt the NLEM from federal, state, and local firearms laws and regulations. CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 1417 would have no significant effect on the federal budget.
Enacting H.R. 1417 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 1417 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028.
H.R. 1417 would impose an intergovernmental mandate as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) by preempting state and local laws that would otherwise impede the ability of the National Law Enforcement Museum to acquire, possess, transport, import, or display firearms. Although the bill would limit the application of state and local laws, it would impose no duty on state, local, or tribal governments that would result in additional spending or a loss of revenues.
The bill contains no private-sector mandates as defined in UMRA.
