Newly elected Governor Brian Kemp (GA) recently joined the Governors Sportsmen’s Caucus (GSC), a bipartisan group of governors from across the country who are dedicated to their sportsmen and women constituents.
“As an avid outdoorsman, I am honored to join the Governors Sportsmen’s Caucus. I look forward to working with my fellow caucus members to promote outdoor recreation, encourage wildlife conservation, and protect our Second Amendment rights,” said Gov. Kemp.
Georgia is home to more than 1 million hunters and anglers who contribute nearly $54 million to fish and wildlife conservation each year.
Gov. Kemp is joined by several other elected officials who are dedicated to providing a voice for Georgia’s sportsmen and women, including Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus Co-Chair Congressman Austin Scott and CSC Member Senator Johnny Isakson. Additionally, National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC) Executive Council President Senator Bill Heath also serves as Co-Chair to the Georgia Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus with Representative David Knight.
Recognizing the strength of the sportsmen’s voice in Georgia, the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation and Georgia Sportsmen’s Caucus will host the 16th NASC Annual Summit in Greensboro this November. This Summit gathers pro-sportsmen elected officials from Georgia and across the country with conservation partners to reflect on successes and discuss challenges for the upcoming year.
