According to a GOP aide, a bill that combines the Fix NICS Act and the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 is likely to be voted on today.
“It is my understanding they may be combined,” the aide said. “Rules is meeting at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday. They have both. Floor vote should be Wednesday,” stated the aide. With 213 cosponsors at the moment, the bill is likely to be passed by the House committee.
It is also evident from the House Committee on Rules site that the two bills are likely to be combined. The website also shows Rep. Dina Titus’s amendment, filed to remove the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, which made it through the Judiciary Committee last week. This amendment, however, is likely to be defeated by the Republican-controlled committee before the combinedpost was originally published on this site
