The ‘‘Hunting Heritage and Environmental Legacy Preservation for Wildlife Act’’ (HELP for Wildlife Act) successfully passed the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee
Today, the ‘‘Hunting Heritage and Environmental Legacy Preservation for Wildlife Act’’ (HELP for Wildlife Act) successfully passed the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee. The bill will reauthorize important conservation programs that will help the Chesapeake Bay, migratory birds, and wetlands across the country. The National Wildlife Federation applauds the Senators for standing up for both wildlife and sportsmen with the passage of this bill.
“Today’s 14-7 bipartisan vote to pass the Hunting Heritage and Environmental Legacy Preservation for Wildlife Act (S. 1514) will advance key priorities of sportsmen and women, including important programs that protect wetlands, migratory birds, and the Chesapeake Bay,” said Collin O’Mara, president and chief executive officer of the National Wildlife Federation. “The HELP Act represents a great bipartisan effort to conserve America’s wildlife and outdoor heritage for hunters, anglers, campers, hikers, and wildlife enthusiasts and now moves to the Senate floor with strong bipartisan support. We applaud Chairman Barrasso, Ranking Member Carper, Senator Cardin, Senator Boozman, Senator Klobuchar, Senator Capito, Senator Baldwin, Senator King, and Senator Duckworth for leading on this important legislation.”
While other bipartisan sportsmen bills have been introduced over the past few years, none of them have made it into law thus far.
