The legislation was reported out of the committee with overwhelming bipartisan support. Sen. Mike Lee (Utah) cast the sole recorded vote opposing the measure.
Today's vote represents an important step toward enactment of this important legislation which will become eligible for consideration by the entire Senate subsequent to additional provisions of the Act being reported out of the Environment and Public Works Committee.
Thank you to all of the NSSF members and hunters and shooters who took the time to contact your Senators to urge advancement of the Bipartisan Sportsmen's Act. Our industry's voice was heard and we made a difference.
