A is the correct answer.

look at the latter half of the sentence. it includes "if enacted"..that suggests that we should have "proposal" in that very clause. Only A and B meet that requirement

Now we come to usage issues. Since the action is yet to be implemented, use of an "-ing" form is incorrect. An infinitive is more appropriate. Also, "may be" in B is redundant and is not required for the meaning to be clear.

Thus, A is best.
