Sportsmen's Act of 2012--Motion to Proceed

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. TESTER. Mr. President, as the majority leader pointed out, this Sportsmen's Act is a compilation of 19 bills. Hunting season has already started. This bill benefits 90 million Americans who hunt, fish, and watch wildlife,
supported by 56 groups from the Nature Conservancy to the NRA. It reduces our deficit by some $7 million due to net gain over 10 years. This is an economic driver of outdoor industry, some $646 billion in direct spending to our economy. I urge a ``yes'' vote on the motion to proceed and since it is 20 after 1, I would like to have a voice vote on it.
