The National Fish & Wildlife Foundation Reauthorization Act has been introduced in the Senate. The measure (S. 51) is a companion to the bill introduced last week in the House (for details on the legislation and info on the foundation, see story linked to below).
Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) introduced the bill, which was referred to the Committee on Environment & Public Works. Eight Senators cosponsored the bill, including Ben Cardin (D-Md.)

Boxer introduced a bill to reauthorize the foundation last year. The committee passed it last September but the full Senate never took a vote. It was also included in an omnibus sportsman's bill which the Senate debated but never voted on.
And similar legislation was introduced in the House last year too. It was referred to two subcommittees of the House Natural Resources Committee: Energy & Mineral Resources and Fisheries, Wildlife, Oceans, and Insular Affairs. But neither subcommittee ever acted.
