House Water Bill Elicits Sportsmen’s Recommendations for Fish & Wildlife Restoration

Seven prominent sportsmen’s groups representing millions of hunters, anglers, conservationists and resource managers today delivered a letter to the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure containing recommendations aimed at facilitating the protection and restoration of fish and wildlife habitats as part of a comprehensive approach to water resources management.

The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure is currently considering the Water Resources Reform and Development Act, which sets policies and programs for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Ensuring that water resource projects authorized by the legislation are designed, built and operated to sustain and improve the environment is critical to the health of rivers and other waterways, as well as to fish and wildlife and their habitats.

Signatories of the letter include the American Sportfishing Association, Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies, B.A.S.S., Ducks Unlimited, The Nature Conservancy, Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership and Trout Unlimited.
