Contact Your U.S. Senators and Urge Their Support of S. 3525 the "Sportsmen's Act of 2012"

Friday, September 14, 2012

In the waning days of the 112th Congress, there is an outside chance that the U.S. Senate could vote on a sportsmen's package--S. 3525, "The Sportsmen's Act of 2012."  S. 3525 is an essential piece of legislation focused on the expansion and enhancement of hunting, recreational fishing and shooting on federal public land.

This bill is a compilation of 19 bipartisan bills important to the sportsmen's community.  In addition to promoting land access, the bill would amend the Toxic Substances Control Act to prevent this and future administrations from using the Environmental Protection Agency to eliminate the right of hunters, shooters and anglers to use traditional ammunition and fishing tackle.  The bill would amend the law to clarify that the EPA does not have the authority to regulate shot, bullets or sport fishing equipment. 

The bill also allows for the importation of polar bears legally taken from approved populations in Canada before the 2008 ban. 

As we previously
reported, H.R. 4089--the "Sportsmen's Act of 2012"--passed the U.S. House of Representatives on April 17, 2012, by a bipartisan vote of 274 to 146.

Please be sure to contact your U.S. Senators and ask them to support S. 3525 should it come up for a vote. 

You can find contact information for your U.S. Senators by using the "Write your Representatives" tool at www.NRAILA.org. You may also contact your Senators by phone at (202) 224-3121.
