California has selected four new Co-Chairs to lead the California Outdoor Sporting Caucus.
The newly established bipartisan Co-Chairs include Senators Bill Dodd and Brian Jones, Assemblyman Adam Gray, and Assemblywoman Marie Waldron. These leaders bring bipartisanship, diversity and unique perspectives from different regions of the Golden State.
The Caucus joined the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC) fifteen years ago, as one of the original states in 2004. In a state that features numerous opportunities for sportsmen and women, the new leadership is firmly committed to its mission to:
- Preserve and promote the traditional rights of California citizens to hunt, fish, and pursue outdoor related activities.
- Ensure that California’s sportsmen and women have reasonable access to public lands to enjoy outdoor pursuits.
- Protect the investment of sportsmen and women in wildlife and fisheries management by safeguarding the integrity of user-fee trust funds and license revenue.
- Recognize the importance of hunting, fishing, and other outdoor activities to our state’s economy, and support outdoor-related industries and activities.
“It is an honor to be the Co-Chair of the California Outdoor Sporting Caucus. Outdoor recreation is an important part of California’s history. It is imperative as conservationists that we preserve sportsmen’s activities for California’s environment and future generations,” said Sen. Jones.
The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation looks forward to continuing to work closely with the California Outdoor Sporting Caucus to protect and advance the interests of sportsmen and women in the Golden State.
