On March 9, the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) hosted a reception in Washington, D.C. to celebrate more than thirty years of working with the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC) to advance sportsmen’s conservation policy.
Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC) leadership welcomed returning CSC Members to the reception, and encouraged new Members of the 116th Congress to join the largest bipartisan caucus in Congress, which provides a voice for more than 53 million Americans who hunt and fish.
Earlier that day, more than a dozen CSC members introduced S. 3422, the Great American Outdoors Act, which includes numerous provisions to benefit sportsmen and women to increase access and restore our national parks. CSC Vice-Chair Senator Joe Manchin (WV) praised the efforts by his colleagues and other conservation leaders of the passage of S. 3422.
Following remarks, CSC members and representatives from the sportsmen’s community conversed about upcoming policy priorities for 2020.
