The Obama administration announced plans on Friday for more than $20 million in grants aimed at strengthening the national gun background check system.

The move is part of the president’s 23 proposals to bolster the country’s gun control laws, and comes as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has promised to bring a bill to the floor that would expand gun background checks.

The $20 million will be given to states through three separate grants, which the Justice Department (DOJ) is planning to oversee, in an effort to incentivize state officials to share more information with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), according to the agency.
