Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus Leadership Named For The 110th Congress

Friday, January 5, 2007

Sportsmen's issues Will Continue To Transcend Party Lines

The 110th Congress, under Democratic leadership for the first time in 12 years, officially opened yesterday.  On this same day, the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus anointed new, bi-partisan leadership to serve as the stewards of sportsmen’s issues during the two-year session.

Serving as Co-Chairs in the Senate will be Senators Max Baucus (D-Mont.), and Mike Crapo (R-Idaho).  The House Co-Chairs will be Representatives Ron Kind (D-Wis.) and Paul Ryan (R-Wis.).  The Caucus Vice-Chairs will be Senators Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) and John Cornyn (R-Texas), along with Representatives Dan Boren (D-Okla.) and Steve Pearce (R-N.M.) in the House.

“Sportsmen and the industries that serve them owe a debt of gratitude to the leaders of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus.  They work overtime to make sure sportsmen and the issues that affect us are protected in the halls of Congress,” said Jeff Crane, President of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation.  “The Sportsmen’s Caucus has always been effective in working together--not as Republican and Democrat, but as sportsmen and women.  As a result, they have had a tremendous impact on conservation policy. 

The Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation also acknowledges the success and dedication of the outgoing leadership from the 109th Congress.  Under their direction, the sportsmen’s community witnessed several major victories.  Most notable for NRA members, hunters, and other gun owners was passage of the landmark bill S.397, “The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act,” and a prohibition on confiscating lawfully-owned firearms during states of emergency.
