Walz to Lead Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus
Bipartisan caucus includes nearly 300 Members of Congress
Washington, DC [1/27/15] - Representative Tim Walz has been tapped to Chair the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC), a bipartisan group of nearly 300 Members of Congress. Rep. Walz is joined by Co-Chair Rep. Rob Wittman (R-VA) and Vice-Chairs Reps. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) and Gene Green (D-TX).
“As a life-long hunter and outdoorsman, I am honored and excited to help lead this important Caucus. I look forward to working with my fellow sportsmen and women in Congress to protect our natural state treasures and promote our strong hunting and fishing heritage,” said Walz.
Jeff Crane, President of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation stated, “I want to thank Congressman Tim Walz for his leadership as Vice-Chair during the last Congress, and for assuming his new role as Co-Chair of the bipartisan Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus. We look forward to working with CSC leadership of the 114th Congress to protect and advance pro-sportsmen’s conservation policy.”
The Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus was established in 1989 to promote issues important to millions of hunters and anglers across the country.
Minnesota is home to millions of sportsmen and women who play a large role both in protecting our natural state treasures and revitalizing our state’s economy; hunting and fishing retail sales contribute more than $3 billion to Minnesota’s economy alone and support nearly 50,000 jobs.
