Simpson Cosponsors Recreational Fishing & Hunting Bill

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson is an original cosponsor of H.R. 1825, the Recreational Fishing & Hunting Heritage Opportunities Act of 2013. This legislation would ensure that public land managers facilitate access for fishing, sport hunting, and recreational shooting on federal land managed by the BLM and Forest Service.

"Access to hunting, fishing, and other outdoor recreational activities is one of the reasons Idahoans love where they live," said Simpson. "Hunters and anglers have a long heritage of enjoying these activities on public lands, and this bill ensures that they continue to have access to traditional recreational activities, even as land management plans change."

As Chairman of the House Interior and Environment Appropriations Subcommittee, Simpson oversees funding for public lands agencies like the BLM and the Forest Service. Simpson strongly supports appropriate recreational activities, including hunting and fishing, on public lands.
