H.R. 3091 would permit federal law enforcement officers to purchase retired handguns at fair market value from the federal agency that issued the handgun to such officer.
CBO expects that implementing the bill would increase administrative costs both for the General Services Administration to develop regulations to implement the program and for law enforcement agencies that participate in the program. Based on the cost of similar programs, we estimate those costs would be less than $500,000 over the 2023-2028 period. Any spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds.
