SCI Applauds Passage of SHARE Act in U.S. House

SCI first for huntersSafari Club International (SCI) applauds the bipartisan support of the U.S. House of Representatives for passing H.R. 2406, the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act of 2015.  This legislation expands and protects opportunities for the 37 million Americans who hunt and fish, including a provision to codify an “open until closed” policy for hunter access on federal public lands.

Bipartisanship is one of the continuing hallmarks for legislation to protect and advance hunting and angling, and SCI thanks the members of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus and the leadership in the House of Representatives for advancing this important legislation.  We appreciate the hard work of the bill’s original sponsors Reps. Robert Wittman (R-VA 1), Tim Walz (D-MN 1), Jeff Duncan (R-SC 3) and Gene Green (D-TX 29).

SCI also recognizes Speaker Paul Ryan, (R-WI 1), Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA-23) and Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA 1) for bringing this important piece of legislation to the House floor.  SCI appreciates the efforts of Natural Resources Committee Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT 1) and Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX 32) in advancing this important piece of legislation.

With today’s bipartisan vote, America’s sportsmen and women are a step closer to enacting these much-needed, common-sense reforms. SCI encourages the U.S. Senate to take action on this legislation in the near future.

SCI has been working closely on this legislation with, and appreciates the efforts of, the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, the National Rifle Association, and the National Shooting Sports Foundation, among other groups. The combined effort by these organizations ensured that the House of Representatives passed the bipartisan SHARE Act of 2015.

Thank you to all of the SCI members and hunters who took the time to contact your Representative and urge him or her to support the SHARE Act.  All hunters’ voices were heard and made a difference!
