Pheasants Forever Urges Suppport of Sportsmen's Act of 2014
Yesterday (July 7, 2014), the U.S. Senate overwhelmingly advanced the Bipartisan Sportsmen's Act of 2014 (S. 2363), moving the legislation one step closer to passage. The Sportsmen's Act, which boast the support of bevy of national conservation and sportmen organizations - including Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever - representing millions of outdoor sportsmen and women, contains a host of provisions that stand to benefit hunters, anglers and other outdoor recreationists.
The Sportsmen's Act will enact a variety of measures to facilitate the use of and access of federal public lands and waters for hunting, fishing and shooting. Provisions in the bill will also help increase revenue for wildlife conservation, hunter education and shooting programs.
We urge Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever members to contact their Senator and ask to support the Bipartisan Sportsmen's Act of 2014 (the House has passed a similar piece of legislation). Ask you Senator to:
• Recognize conservation, wildlife sportsmen and women by supporting the Sportsmen's Act of 2014 (S.2363)
• Oppose amendments not related to Sportmen's Act legislation.
We need your help in this final push for the Sportmen's Act of 2014. Thanks for your time and consideration, and for supporting Pheasants Forever and wildlife habitat conservation.
Pheasants Forever is dedicated to the conservation of pheasants, quail and other wildlife through habitat improvments, public awareness, education and land management policies and programs.
