Hudson's H.R. 38 Included in Republican Study Committee Budget
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08), a member of the conservative Republican Study Committee, applauded the release today of RSC's 2022 budget proposal which includes his H.R. 38, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act.
"This proposal balances our budget in 5 years and reduces taxes, while Washington Democrats try to raise taxes and spend us into oblivion," said Rep. Hudson. "It also secures our border, protects life, and defends our Second Amendment. I am glad to see H.R. 38 included in this proposal, which offers a clear contrast of the priorities between House Republicans and House Democrats."
Rep. Hudson authored H.R. 38 to ensure law-abiding citizens with a permit to carry a firearm do not become criminals when they cross an invisible state line. The bill protects rights enshrined in the Second Amendment, which the Supreme Court announced it will examine in a case later this year. Yesterday, House Democrats on the Rules Committee rejected an amendment offered by Rep. Hudson to include H.R. 38 in a bill to boost security in our nation's capital. With America reopening, Rep. Hudson argued that law-abiding citizens should be able to protect themselves in Washington, D.C. and across the country.
"While the defeat of this amendment was disappointing, I am glad to see H.R. 38 included in RSC's budget today and will continue to advance it in Congress," continued Rep. Hudson.
