Here is the letter RMEF sent to their membership. Mule deer foundation also sent out an email asking you to contact your senator to support the Sportsmen Act of 2015. If you support public lands, access, the LWCF, and a bright future for the hunting and angling community, contact your senators and ask them to support this piece of legislation as is, and to do it as quickly as possible. Here is a link to the list of representatives in the senate:Urge your Senators to Support
the Bipartisan Sportsmen's Act!
The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee just passed the Bipartisan Sportsmen's Act of 2015 (S.556)-a comprehensive bill addressing a variety of important issues for hunters, anglers and recreational shooters. The bill also seeks to maintain open access to public lands for hunting, fishing and other recreation. It received only one dissenting vote.
RMEF has been a staunch supporter of this bill since its introduction and has worked diligently with the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus and Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation to assure its passage.
Advancing the bill out of the committee is a good first step but we need the full Senate to follow suit. Please reach out to your senators online or by calling (202) 224-3121 to urge them to support this important sportsmen legislation without delay.
We appreciate your ongoing support.
M. David Allen
RMEF President & CEO
