On September 4, the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) and 34 other organizations submitted a letter to Congress in support of a number of top conservation priorities.
The letter, which was sent to the leadership of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, and the House Natural Resources Committee, highlighted the following priorities:
- Recovering America’s Wildlife Act (H.R. 4647)
- Restore Our Parks Act (H.R. 1225/S. 500)
- Land and Water Conservation Fund (H.R. 3195/S. 1081)
- North American Wetlands Conservation Act (H.R. 925/S. 261)
- Modernizing the Pittman-Robertson Fund for Tomorrow’s (H.R. 877/S. 2092)
The letter urged Congress to prioritize and enact these critical conservation programs. CSF has been instrumental in working with leaders and members of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus to either introduce or cosponsor these pieces of legislation. Each of these bills maintain strong bipartisan support and are long standing priorities of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation.
All of these bills are currently awaiting action at the Committee level.
