With broad bipartisan support, the U.S. House of Representatives last week passed the Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act (H.R. 3065) as Title XII of the Conservation and Economic Growth Act (H.R. 2578). Sponsored by Rep. Heath Schuler (D-N.C.), the legislation provides state game and fish agencies with more flexibility and discretion to use Pittman-Robertson (Wildlife Restoration Trust Fund) funds for the creation, enhancement and maintenance of public shooting ranges.
