The Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act will give states greater flexibility in using their designated federal wildlife funds to establish safe recreational shooting areas. And it’s set for a committee vote next week.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation is urging all sportsmen to call their senators to urge them to support this bill. The Senate Environment and Public Works committee has scheduled a hearing on this bill for Tuesday, March 13. Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado introduced the bill (S. 1249 / H.R. 3065), which allows states to use funds they receive from things like the Pittman-Robertson Act to building shooting areas on federal land.
