The U.S. House of Representatives by an overwhelming 268-154 vote last Wednesday passed the bipartisan Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act.
This was a big win. As NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel Lawrence G. Keane noted, “The SHARE Act will help ensure that our nation’s outdoor traditions are preserved, protected and promoted.” See NSSF’s press release.
Key legislative priorities in the legislation include provisions to protect the use of traditional ammunition and fishing tackle, greater flexibility for states to use Pittman-Robertson funds to create and enhance public shooting ranges and greater access to federal lands.
