As one of the founding members of the Kentucky Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus, Senator Robin Webb has been a stalwart supporter of sportsmen’s issues and Kentucky’s sporting heritage in the General Assembly since 2005. Senator Webb previously served as President of the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC) Executive Council and in NASC Executive Council leadership roles as Secretary and Vice-President.
In Kentucky, Senator Webb regularly enjoys hunting, angling, and horseback riding and showing. She is no stranger to the conservation arena and credits her father, a former Wildlife Commissioner under eight governors, for instilling a strong passion for promoting and advancing hunting, angling, and natural resources in the Bluegrass State. In addition to her involvement and leadership with NASC, Senator Webb is a National Rifle Association Life Member, National Wild Turkey Federation member, and a Ducks Unlimited Life Sponsor.
Over the years, Senator Webb has authored comprehensive land stewardship legislation, as well as measures related to game meat donations, knife preemptions, hunter education, and banning internet hunting. Additionally, Senator Webb works closely with Kentucky’s Department of Fish and Wildlife to communicate sportsmen’s views on hunting and fishing seasons, crossbows, and exposing children to Kentucky’s natural heritage. She was also an original sponsor of the resolution honoring the 75th anniversary of the Wildlife and Sport Fishing Restoration Act (WSFR) in 2012.
"Kentucky is blessed with storied sporting traditions and vast natural resources. The opportunity to protect and advance issues of importance to Kentucky’s sportsmen and women in the legislature has been very rewarding” Senator Webb stated. “In addition, the growth and success of NASC over the last 10 years has been incredible, and I am proud to have been able to serve in leadership during that time.”
