Sportsmen’s Act of 2014: Missouri Senator backs bill for hunters, anglers

See also

According to an article published by KSRP on March 1, Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill is now backing a bill that protects hunting and fishing rights and promotes increased access for hunters and anglers on federally controlled land.

KSRP reports that Senator McCaskill is now backing the Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act of 2014. The bill would help protect the rights of hunters and anglers, it would also reportedly force the Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service to offer hunting and angling on federal lands, as well as allow duck hunting permits to be sold online.

In addition, the Sportsmen’s Act of 2014 will help prevent the environmental agencies from regulating hunting and fishing equipment like lead ammunition and fishing weights. This measure likely comes as a result of the California Senate passing a bill in September that would ban the use of lead ammunition starting in 2019.

McCaskill reportedly said that she is backing the Sportsmen’s Act of 2014 to fulfill an “obligation to our kids and grand kids, by making sure they have the same opportunities to enjoy our state’s great outdoors as we did.”
