Maine: Sportsmen’s Caucus Leadership Announced for the 129th Legislature

By Joe Mullin, New England States Coordinator

The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) announced the Co-Chairs of the bipartisan and bicameral Maine Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus for the 2019 legislative session.

The Maine Sportsmen’s Caucus is part of the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC) network, which includes 48 state legislative caucuses across the country with the common mission to protect and advance hunting and angling in their respective states.

On the Senate side, Senator Troy Jackson, a former Co-Chair who was recently elected as the 117th President of the Maine Senate, will be serving in this capacity for another term. Senator Matthew Pouliot, who has been a longstanding Caucus member through previous sessions, has likewise agreed to take on the role of Co-Chair for the session.

On the House side, the Caucus will be led by Representatives Catherine Nadeau and Trey Stewart III. Rep. Nadeau was recently selected to serve as Chair of the Joint Standing Committee on Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. Rep. Stewart, an avid hunter, serves constituents in Maine’s District 147.

“CSF commends these elected officials on their decisions to lead the Caucus, and looks forward to working with them as they protect and advance the interests of Maine’s 413,000 sportsmen and women,” said Mullin, “I look forward to working closely with the Maine Caucus over the next year on policies that promote hunting and angling across the state.”

Your opinion counts

The use of descending devices to safely release your catch has shown they significantly reduce the discard mortality of fish caught from deep water. Reducing discard mortality in both the commercial and recreational sector will translate to more abundant populations and additional access opportunities for anglers. Do you support the use of descending devices while reef fishing to safely release your catch?
