Iowa Hearing Protection Act Heads To Governor

posted on March 24, 2016

The Iowa House of Representatives on Tuesday voted to concur with the amended version of House File 2279, the Hearing Protection Act, with a 78-21 vote. 

HF 2279 passed its final vote in the Senate with an overwhelming 46-4 bipartisan vote, but due to a favorable amendment made by the Senate Judiciary Committee, the measure had to return to the House for a concurrence vote. HF 2279 will now be sent to Republican Gov. Terry Branstad for his consideration and signature.

If Gov. Branstad signs HF 2279 into law, Iowa will become the 42nd state to allow for the sale, use and possession of firearm sound suppressors. NRA-ILA thanks everyone who reached out to their legislators in support of the measure. Please contact the legislators who supported HF 2279 and thank them for their support.
