The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) continues to urge the House of Representatives to pass H.R. 925, the America’s Conservation Enhancement Act, as currently written.
Last week, CSF sent an action alert to Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC) Members in the House urging them to prioritize this important legislation. CSF continues to coordinate with CSC Members to advance H.R. 925 out of the House and to the President’s desk for signature. Furthermore, on January 23, CSF and 55 other sporting-conservation organizations sent a letter to House Leadership in support of the swift passage of this bill, which passed the Senate on a strong bipartisan voice vote on January 9.
H.R. 925 builds off of conservation successes earlier in the 116th Congress including S. 47, the John D. Dingell, Jr. Conservation, Management, and Recreation Act, the Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act, and most recently the FY20 funding bills, which included robust funding levels for many important conservation programs as well as a longstanding priority known as Modernizing the Pittman-Robertson Fund.
The bill awaits to be scheduled for a floor vote in the House.
