Senators Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) and Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) introduced S. 941 — the “Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Reform and Firearms Modernization Act” — on April 30. Senator Leahy is chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, to which S. 941 has been referred.
S. 941 represents the first time such BATFE Reform legislation has been introduced in the Senate. However, the House passed similar legislation (H.R. 5092) in the 109th Congress by a 277-131 vote.
