Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act Reintroduced

This just in from OOC’s friends at the National Shooting Sports Foundation…

Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act Reintroduced

 
Sportsmens act 2014 oregon outdoor councilMORE CO-SPONSORS SOUGHT . . . The Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act (S.2363), NSSF’s top legislative priority, was reintroduced last week to accommodate minor technical corrections with 36 co-sponsors from both sides of the aisle. This is a sign that the bill may come to the Senate floor soon. For hunters and sport shooters this is the most significant package of legislation in a generation. It protects the use of traditional ammunition, allows more flexibility for federal funds to be used to build and maintain ranges on public lands and ensures access to federal lands for hunting, shooting and other outdoor activities. NSSF continues working to build bipartisan support for this bill, but your help is needed. Call your senators at 202-224-3121 and ask them to co-sponsor the bill if they haven’t already done so. Find the list of co-sponsors and call today or as soon as possible.
 
The Oregon Outdoor Council urges you to contact your U.S. Senator and request that he becomes a sponsor of the Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act.  With over 60% of Oregon’s land base under federal management policies and regulations we agree with our conservation partners at the National Shooting Sports Foundation that passage of Senate Bill  S.2363 will protect your right to use traditional ammunition, enhance your recreational access and activities on these lands. Currently, neither Senator Ron Wyden or Senator Jeff Merkley have signed on as co-sponsors. Stress to the Senators that the days you spend hunting, fishing, trapping and shooting on federal lands are very important to you and that by his signing on as a co-sponsor he is openly demonstrating that you are important to him.

RON WYDEN (D)
