Proposed Federal House Legislation HB4183

watching this bill   evalutation

This legislation would require all states provide NICS with domestic violence conviction records as a condition of receiving federal grants.

Sponsor: PA - Costello

Legislation Overview

Title: Domestic Violence Records Reporting Improvement Act of 2017

Subject: Crime and law enforcement

Description: Domestic Violence Records Reporting Improvement Act of 2017 This bill amends the Crime Identification Technology Act of 1998 to require a state, as an eligibility condition to receive a grant under the National Criminal History Improvement Program, to provide to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) a certain percentage of records related to domestic violence convictions and protection orders. Additionally, the bill amends the NICS Improvement Amendments Act of 2007 to waive the requirement for a state to certify, as an eligibility condition to receive a grant under the NICS Act Record Improvement Program (NARIP), that it has a relief from disabilities program, if the state's primary purpose for the NARIP grant is to improve access to domestic violence records in the NICS.

Session: 115th Congress
