Congressman Chuck Fleischmann recently voted for the Sportsmen’s Heritage Act of 2012.
The Sportsmen’s Heritage Act, which is supported by the National Rifle Association and more than 35 conservation groups, removes restrictions on hunting and fishing on public lands. This act also prevents the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency from barring the use of certain types of traditional ammunition.
“As a member of the NRA, I fully believe that Americans should be able to hunt and fish recreationally free from the overreach of government bureaucrats,” said Fleischmann, whose district includes Oak Ridge. “From the founding of our nation to the settling of the West, the right of citizens to hunt and fish on wild land has been a hallmark of our American identity.”
