Here’s reaction from the National Wildlife Federation:
Bipartisan Support for Restoring Students’ Access to Archery, Hunter Safety Education Programs
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Sept 27, 2023) — The National Wildlife Federation applauded members of Congress for advancing a bipartisan proposal to ensure students and schools can continue to access Department of Education funding for archery and hunter education.
“We are grateful for congressional champions who worked together on a bipartisan solution to safeguard Department of Education funding for hunter safety education programs. We know that for decades, children across the nation have fallen in love with the outdoors through these programs that teach about wildlife management, firearm and archery safety, and habitat conservation,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “We urge Congress to get a bipartisan legislative solution to President Biden’s desk so that we can keep building the next generation of conservationists.”
