Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation

Washington, DC --(Ammoland.com)- On May 20, the Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act (S. 2363) was reintroduced into the U.S. Senate by Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC) Co-Chair Senator Kay Hagan (NC) and CSC member Senator Lisa Murkowski (AK).

The bipartisan legislation was reintroduced after necessary technical changes were made to the language of S. 1996, which was originally introduced in February.

Sponsors of the Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act include the bipartisan Senate leadership of the CSC: Co-Chairs Senators Kay Hagan and John Thune (SD) and Vice-Chairs Senators Mark Pryor (AR) and James Risch (ID).

Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) President, Jeff Crane praised the reintroduction of this vital legislation. “We thank CSC Co-Chair Senator Hagan and CSC member Senator Murkowski for reintroducing this bipartisan package of legislation that includes provisions vital to protecting our hunting, angling and recreational shooting traditions in the U.S. This is a significant advancement for sportsmen and women across the country and I want to thank the bipartisan Senate leadership of the CSC for their efforts in moving this legislation.”

Currently there are 35 cosponsors to S. 2363, with an equal number of Republicans and Democrats sponsoring the legislation.

The 12 titles included in S. 2363 remain the same as the recently introduced Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act of 2014 (S. 1996). The technical changes made to this legislation keep the integrity of the original bill and do not diminish any of the provisions.

Passage of S. 2363 is a priority and would ensure our sportsmen’s traditions are protected and advanced, as it addresses some of the most current concerns of American hunters, anglers and recreational shooters. CSF will continue to work with the CSC to move the Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act through the U.S. Senate.
