On Wednesday, February 26, the New York Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus held it’s first event of 2014, a Caucus Breakfast. The Co-Chairs of the Caucus, Senator Greg Ball and Assemblymember Aileen Gunther, we’re joined by approximately 20 of their colleagues from both chambers and both sides of the aisle to discuss legislative priorities for the 2014 session and to interact with leaders of the New York sportsmen’s and conservation community. The event was co-hosted by the New York Sportsman’s Advisory Council and the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, both of which are working to ensure sportsmen’s interests are prioritized in the policy process in Albany.
