All the relevant information is available here.

Section 2 appears to classify bump stocks as NFA items under state law. This is odd because there's no way to legally register them under federal law. Proposed amendments to regulate aftermarket triggers failed in committee.

(3) "Bump-fire stock" means a butt stock designed to be attached
to a semiautomatic firearm with the effect of increasing the rate of
fire achievable with the semiautomatic firearm to that of a fully
automatic firearm by using the energy from the recoil of the firearm
to generate reciprocating action that facilitates repeated activation
of the trigger.

Methinks this was done in anticipation of bump stocks being added to the NFA.
