H.R. 3065, Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act


H.R. 3065 would allow states to use grants awarded under the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act to fund up to 90 percent of the cost of building or operating public target ranges. Under that act, half of all federal excise taxes collected on pistols, revolvers, bows, arrows, and archer accessories are apportioned to states as grants for hunter education programs, including the construction and development of target ranges. Under current law, funds awarded under that act can be used to cover 75 percent of the costs of such programs. Because the provision of the bill authorizing federal funds to be used for up to 90 percent of such costs would not affect the total amount of Pittman-Robertson funds that could be spent, CBO estimates that enacting the provision would have no effect on the federal budget.

Yeah, but I bet you will need to jump thru a buttload of paperwork to get the grant and even then there are probably another buttload of provisions that would need to be followed. Out here in Las Vegas we just got a public range and I hope they know about this bill so they can get some bucks to improve it.

Aloha and stay well,
