Safari Club International

Washington, DC –-(Ammoland.com)- Safari Club International (SCI) today hosted a breakfast briefing for the leadership of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus to discuss priority legislation for America’s hunters and anglers.

The focus of the briefing was on H.R. 1825, the Recreational Fishing and Hunting Heritage and Opportunities Act, introduced by Congressman Dan Benishek (MI). H.R. 1825 will secure permanent protection of hunting and fishing on U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management lands.

“SCI would like to thank Congressman Benishek for his leadership for America’s hunters and anglers,” said SCI President Craig Kauffman. “America’s hunters and anglers expect this legislation to pass the U.S. House of Representatives soon.”

“SCI, along with nearly 30 other hunting organizations, supports H.R. 1825 so that future generations of sportsmen and women will have equal access opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors on federal lands,” said SCI’s Melissa Simpson, Director of Government Affairs. “I was pleased to speak at today’s breakfast, and we see real momentum building for the Hunting Heritage Bill, H.R. 1825, just as we are about to approach the U.S. hunting season.”

Congressman Dan Benishek also spoke at the briefing, along with Susan Recce of the National Rifle Association. Both delivered overviews of the incredible benefits that H.R. 1825 would bring for the average hunter. Other speakers included Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus Co-Chairs, Representatives Bob Latta (OH) and Bennie Thompson (MS), and their colleagues Representatives Rob Wittman (VA), and Tim Walz (MN).

SCI was pleased to offer a forum for these leaders to discuss their plans for bringing H.R. 1825 to a vote in the full House.
