Export licensing requirement

On May 5, 2017 President Trump signed into law a bill (H.R.244), commonly known as a “continuing resolution,” that provides appropriations for the remaining months of Fiscal Year 2017 (which ends September 30, 2017). Section 517 concerns arms exports to Canada. With certain exceptions, it provides that,

Notwithstanding any other provision of law or treaty, none of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available under this Act or any other Act may be expended or obligated by a department, agency, or instrumentality of the United States to pay administrative expenses or to compensate an officer or employee of the United States in connection with requiring an export license for the export to Canada of components, parts, accessories or attachments for firearms … with a total value not exceeding $500 wholesale in any transaction.
