SHOOTING RANGE BILL ADVANCES IN U.S. HOUSE

The U.S. House Judiciary Committee last week voted to advance the Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act (HR 2463). This bi-partisan legislation is sponsored in the House by Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC) member Duncan Hunter and Caucus Vice-Chair Tim Walz, along with a bipartisan coalition of 14 of their House colleagues. This bill would allow states to use the excise taxes already collected on sporting equipment and ammunition to develop and maintain much-needed public shooting ranges while also resulting in increased wildlife conservation funding. Having already received the approval of the Natural Resources Committee, passage of HR 2463 through the Judiciary committee was the final step necessary to send the bill to the floor for consideration by the House.—courtesy National Shooting Sports Foundation
