NSSF pledges to continue Sportsmen's Act work

From National Shooting Sports Foundation

-- A procedural vote in the U.S. Senate delayed action on the Sportsmen's Act of 2012 (S.3525), but the Senate has pledged to continue working in a bipartisan fashion, along with a coalition of more than 45 other leading sportsmen's and conservation groups, to advance the historic package of bills before the adjournment of the 112th Congress.

"It is clear there is broad bipartisan support for the policies contained in the Sportsmen's Act, which contains our industry's top legislative priorities" said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF senior vice president and general counsel. "While we are disappointed by the Nov. 26 procedural vote, we will continue to work in a bipartisan manner to address budgetary concerns raised by senators in time to ensure a vote on the Sportsmen's Act before the end of the lame-duck session."

NSSF urges members and hunters to contact your senators to pass this bill. Complete contact information on Senate members can be found at
