Stop Bureaucratic Threats to Hunting and Fishing, Support H.R. 4089


WASHINGTON, D.C., April 16, 2012 -

Dear Colleague,

The bill protects the traditional right of American sportsmen to fish and hunt from bureaucratic restrictions and limitations. It will remove government roadblocks to these activities on certain public lands and guard against new regulations that threaten to block or limit hunting and fishing.

It also reaffirms existing law barring the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from banning certain types of ammunition and fishing tackle, which will protect against lawsuits and bureaucratic maneuvers aimed at undermining current law.

This bill achieves four goals contained in four titles, each reflecting bipartisan stand-alone bills introduced by Rep. Dan Benishek, Rep. Jeff Flake, Rep. Don Young, and Rep. Jeff Miller:
