New York: Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus Adds Fourth Co-Chair in Preparation for 2020 Legislative Session

Contact: Brent Miller, Senior Director, Northeastern States and States Program Director

In preparation for the 2020 legislative session, the bipartisan and bicameral New York Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus has added a new leader to their ranks – Assemblyman Colin Schmitt (99th Assembly District). 

“Protecting our hunting and fishing traditions in New York State as well as conserving our land, water and natural resources has been a significant focus of mine since being elected to the State Assembly,” stated Assemblyman Colin Schmitt.  “I am honored and humbled to be appointed as Co-Chair of the Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus while still a freshman in the Assembly. I am grateful for the opportunity to assume this statewide leadership role within the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses organization.”

Assemblyman Schmitt joins current leaders Assembly Member Aileen Gunther, Assemblyman Clifford Crouch, and Senator Joseph Griffo. The New York Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus was formed when the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses was launched in 2004, and serves as the voice of New York’s 2.1 million sportsmen and women in matters before the legislature in Albany. 

“The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation is excited to work with Assemblyman Schmitt to protect and advance our time-honored hunting and fishing traditions in the Empire State,” said Brent Miller, CSF’s Senior Director, Northeastern States and States Program Administrator. “In short order, the Assemblyman has proven to be a stalwart supporter of, and active participant in, a wide range of hunting and fishing activities. Assemblyman Schmitt has also established himself as a leading advocate for land and water conservation in his district and across New York. We congratulate him on his leadership role with the bipartisan and bicameral New York Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus.”
