WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Bob Latta (R-OH), Co-Chair of the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus, today released the following statement regarding the U.S. Senate’s inaction on S. 2363, companion legislation to H.R. 3590, the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act, sponsored by Latta. The bipartisan legislation includes various pro-sportsmen and sportswomen’s provisions to help ensure our outdoor traditions are protected and advanced.
“It is extremely disappointing that the Senate has yet again refused to move forward with legislation to promote and protect our outdoor traditions,” said Latta.
“As we’ve seen with the dozens of jobs bills passed through the U.S. House of Representatives, the SHARE Act has unfortunately become another victim of the do-nothing Senate, sitting in the stack of bills on Senator Reid’s desk.
The House passed this legislation in February with bipartisan support, and Senator Reid’s refusal to allow amendments to move the bill forward is an indication of how broken the Senate truly is.”
