The House of Representatives passed the Sportmen's Act yesterday, legislation that recognizes the importance of fishing and hunting to our nation. It passed 242-161. Curious as to who voted against it, and with no idea of what I would find, I went here.
This is what I discovered:
230 Republicans voted for it, and just 4 against it. On the other hand, just 12 Democrats supported it and 157 voted against.
If you hunt and fish, you be the judge as to who you should vote for in November.
Here's what Keep America Fishing says:
“Given all that is going on in the world of politics, for our nation’s sporting traditions to receive full consideration by the House of Representatives demonstrates that our Congressional leaders recognize the importance of recreational fishing and hunting to the nation.”
