H.R. 2383 would prohibit federal funds provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) under two of the agency’s grant programs (the State Homeland Security Grant Program and the Urban Areas Security Initiative) from being used to purchase firearms or ammunition for use by teachers.
According to FEMA, the agency’s current guidance and policies prohibit the use of grants to purchase weapons and ammunition. As a result, CBO estimates that H.R. 2383 would have no effect on the federal budget.
