New York lawmakers are pressing the federal government to approve the sale of over-the-counter HIV test kits.

Congressman Anthony Weiner and Assemblyman Richard Gottfried called on the FDA to approve home sales.

HIV test kits cost $20 to $35 and show results within a half hour.

Weiner says home tests remove a major step in finding out your status.
