Winchester Pledges Financial Support For The Congressional Sportmen’s Foundation
Morgan, UT –-(AmmoLand.com)- Winchester Ammunition recently committed $15,000 to help support the mission of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF), which is to provide a voice for all sportsmen and women in Congress to promote sportsmen’s issues with elected officials.
Winchester’s support is divided among three groups within the CSF; the Governor’s Sportsmen’s Caucus, the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses and the CSF Council.
“It’s important to our company, our customers, our industry…and the future of our hunting heritage that we step up and support organizations such as the CSF that play such a vital role in voicing our concerns for land management, hunting practices and other related issues that impact our industry,” said Dick Hammett, President of Winchester Ammunition.
Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus
The Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus is one of the largest and most effective caucuses in the US 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.
National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses
The National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC) serves as the umbrella organization for launching and working with state legislative sportsmen’s caucuses in state legislatures.
Providing a communications network and interaction among state legislators, sportsmen’s groups, industry and media, NASC and state sportsmen’s caucuses are the core of the legislative front protecting and promoting hunting, fishing and wildlife management in state legislatures.
Together, CSF and NASC provide the ultimate protection against legislative attacks on hunting and fishing and deliver results for the advancement of sportsmen’s interests in the political arena.
Governors Sportsmen’s Caucus
The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation recently announced the formation of the Governors Sportsmen’s Caucus, a bipartisan caucus of governors that will work to protect the interests of America’s hunters and anglers, and advance sound wildlife management policy. The GSC was launched at the National Governor’s Association Annual Meeting in Biloxi, Mississippi, on July 17, 2009.
Guided by a bipartisan leadership team of governors and staffed through the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, the GSC will complement and enhance both the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus and the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC).
