Ryan to Serve as Co-Chairman of Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus
Wisconsin's First District Congressman Paul Ryan today announced that, beginning in January, he will serve as a co-chairman of the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus. Over 300 members of the House of Representatives and the Senate currently belong to this bipartisan caucus, which works to protect the rights of America's hunters, anglers, and trappers and promote wildlife habitat conservation. Fellow Wisconsin representative Ron Kind will serve as the other House co-chairman. The term of co-chair lasts two years, throughout the duration of the 110th Congress.
"I'm excited about co-chairing this caucus and working in a bipartisan way on issues that impact my fellow hunters, fishers, and all who enjoy the outdoors," Ryan said. "Hunting and fishing are ingrained in Wisconsin's culture, and it's an honor to be able to chair this caucus and pursue our shared goals of habitat conservation and preserving sportsmen's rights."
Ryan, a bow and gun hunter, presently serves as a vice-chairman of the caucus.
