HON. DAN BOREN of Oklahoma in the House of Representatives Thursday, December 10, 2009

Mr. BOREN. Madam Speaker, as House Co-Chair of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus and lifelong sportsman, I hereby recognize the 20th Anniversary of the founding of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus and the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation. The Foundation was officially incorporated 20 years ago this week on December 7, 1989.

On behalf of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus and the millions of hunters and anglers across the country, congratulations to the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation on 20 years of successfully supporting the Caucus in advancing pro-sportsmen hunting, fishing, and conservation issues in the United States Congress.

The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation is the most trusted organization focused on issues of importance to this nation’s sporting heritage and serves as the most critical link between sportsmen and women and the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus. The sportsmen and women of America can be proud of the long standing partnership between the Caucus and Foundation in accomplishing many legislative victories on their behalf.

Since its inception, the bipartisan Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus has grown into one of the largest and most effective caucuses in the United States Congress with nearly 300 members representing almost all 50 states. With bipartisan leadership in both the House and the Senate, the Caucus is the sportsmen’s ally and first line of defense in Washington promoting and protecting the rights of hunters, trappers and anglers.

With the success of the CSC/CSF partnership, the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation created a network of state legislative sportsmen’s caucuses modeled after the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus in 2004, launching the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC). Currently with 38 state legislative sportsmen’s caucuses and nearly 2,000 legislators, the NASC facilitates the interaction and idea exchange among state caucus leaders and the outdoor community.

Earlier this year the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation launched the Governors Sportsmen’s Caucus to facilitate communication and information exchange among a bipartisan team of state chief executives in support of legislation and regulations that promote and protect hunting and fishing. Guided by a bipartisan leadership team of governors and staffed through the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, the GSC further enhances the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus and the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses.

The combination of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus, the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses, and the Governor’s Sportsmen’s Caucus, working side-by-side with the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, serves as an unprecedented network of pro-sportsmen elected officials that promote and protect the agenda of America’s hunters and anglers.

The Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus and Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation looks back fondly on the accomplishments of the last 20 years and now looks forward to continuing the work of protecting America’s hunters and anglers in the future.

We can have the best wildlife habitat imaginable and a record number of people who buy fishing and hunting licenses, but it won’t matter if misguided laws and regulations are made at the federal and state levels that negatively impact our outdoor traditions. Keeping sportsmen’s issues front and center is what the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation does. Day in and day out, our sole focus is on providing a voice for sportsmen in the political arena. Serving as the first line of defense in protecting America’s outdoor traditions as well as promoting the sportsmen’s agenda through the collective muscle of sportsmen’s caucuses.
