On Wednesday, the U.S. House of Representatives is set to vote on S. 3051, the America’s Conservation Enhancement (ACE) Act, which passed the Senate unanimously less than two weeks ago.
In large part due to the commitment and leadership of members in the bipartisan, bicameral Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC), with strong support from the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF), the ACE Act has passed the Senate twice on unanimous consent agreements since the beginning of the year. The ACE Act is scheduled for a suspension vote in the House, a sign of the strong support for this critically important piece of legislation, which comprises a number of longstanding CSF priorities including:
The ACE Act builds off of momentum generated earlier this Congress with the passage and enactment of the Dingell Act, the Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act, the Modernizing the Pittman-Robertson Fund for Tomorrow’s Needs Act, and most recently the historic Great American Outdoors Act. CSF is actively working with members of the CSC to ensure a successful vote in the House and to help solidify this Congress as one of the most impactful for sportsmen and women in a lifetime.
CSF is continuing to generate support in the House for the ACE Act. Be sure to check CSF’s social media pages for more updates on the ACE Act.
