Bergman Passes Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act (SHARE Act) Out of Natural Resources Committee
Washington –Today, Congressman Jack Bergman voted to pass H.R. 3688 (SHARE Act) out of the Natural Resources Committee. The SHARE Act increases opportunities for hunters, anglers, and recreational shooters; protecting the Second Amendment rights of all Americans and ensuring future generations have access to appropriately use federal lands.
“As a member of the Natural Resources Committee, I know the importance of conserving our federal lands, while ensuring proper and appropriate usage and access for all Americans. Defending sportsmen from burdensome federal regulations, protecting sportsmen’s 2nd Amendment rights, opening more federal land to hunting and fishing, and turning authority back over to the states are all integral parts of the SHARE Act, and I am pleased that the Natural Resources Committee voted to move this legislation forward.
“Additionally, in two major victories for 1st District sportsmen, the SHARE Act reauthorizes the North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA) for five years, and also requires the Department of Interior to reissue the final ruling delisting the grey wolf from the Endangered Species list in the Great Lakes region. Outdoor recreation and sportsmanship are both critical to the vitality of the Upper Peninsula and northern Michigan, and I will continue working to conserve all of our natural resources for those in the 1st District who want to enjoy them."
