Congressman Introduces Sportsmen Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green), in conjunction with the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus, has introduced H.R. 2799, the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act. This bipartisan legislation would create an official advisory board, known as the Wildlife and Hunting Heritage Conservation Council, to serve as counsel to the Departments of the Interior and Agriculture on policies that benefit recreational hunting and wildlife resources. “Ensuring that sportsmen and sportswomen have an advisory capacity role across future Administrations is vital for all who enjoy the great outdoors throughout the nation to engage and provide consensus recommendations to federal agencies who will benefit from the Council’s vast experience and expertise,” said Congressman Latta. “I am confident that this legislation will serve to the betterment of current and future generations of hunter-conservationists.” The Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus is a bipartisan group with nearly 300 members of the House and Senate representing almost all 50 states. Congressman Latta serves as Co-Chair of the caucus.
