I'm withdrawing the Responsible Gun Ownership Act. Also I'm not sure whether or not this would be the FY 2013 or FY 2014 budget, so whichever it is, please list that as the title of this legislation.

TNF, do you have a desired title for that? For right now I will put it in the Queue as TNF Drug Bill.

Ah, did I leave that off? My bad. Let's go with the 'Comprehensive Drug Reform Act of 2013'
