H.R. 8, Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019

Cost Estimate

As passed by the House of Representatives on February 27, 2019

Corrections and Updates

A revised version of this estimate was published on April 23, 2019.  Although the explanation of the bill’s pay-as-you-go effects in the body of this estimate was correct, the estimate’s summary table did not reflect that revenues and direct spending would increase by insignificant amounts.
