My response from sending Roger Williams a thank you letter. I'm seeing a pattern in the responses but at least we are getting responses.
Dear Mr. Jason812,
Thank you for taking the time to express your opinions on H.R. 367, the Hearing Protection Act of 2017. As your representative, I appreciate your comments and I welcome this opportunity to respond.
As you are aware, H.R. 367 was introduced by Representative Jeff Duncan of South Carolina on January 9, 2017. After its introduction, this legislation was referred to the House Committee on Ways and Means. If enacted, this legislation would amend the Internal Revenue Code to eliminate the transfer tax on firearm silencers. Further, this bill would preempt state or local laws that tax or regulate firearm silencers. I am proud to be a co-sponsor of this piece of legislation and look forward to seeing this common sense solution enacted.
Please know I will monitor this legislation and keep your views in mind as Congress takes action in the future. I take great pride in representing the 25th District of Texas and it is an honor to be your voice in Washington.
