Washington, DC --(Ammoland.com)- On Saturday, September 22, the Sportsmen’s Act of 2012 (S.3525) advanced as the Senate voted 84 to 7 on the motion to proceed for a November vote.

Introduced by CSC Co-Chair Senator Jon Tester, the Sportsmen’s Act of 2012 is a package of 19 separate bills including the majority of CSF’s sportsmen’s legislative priorities for the 112th Congress. (Click here for a full description).

In April, the Sportsmen’s Heritage Act of 2012 (H.R. 4089) was passed by the House of Representatives by a bipartisan vote of 276 to 146. If S.3525 is passed in November, it will then move to conference with H.R. 4089, which includes several of the same bills.

Eventual passage of this unprecedented pro-sportsmen’s legislation will promote, protect and preserve our nation’s hunting, shooting and conservation heritage for generations to come. CSF will keep you apprised as this process moves forward.
