Stressing the important role that sportsmen play in Colorado's economy and environment, Congressman Scott Tipton, today, announced that he joined the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus. The Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus was established in 1989 and the nearly 300 members, representing almost all 50 states, champion the issues of hunters, anglers and other sportsmen through the legislative process.
The bi-partisan leadership of the Caucus includes Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT), Sen. John Thune (R-SD), Rep. Jeff Miller (R-FL) and Rep. Mike Ross (D-AR).
"I am proud to have joined the Caucus. Sportsmen play a key role in Colorado's economy and in conservation of the state's abundant natural beauty," Rep. Tipton said. "As I represent the interests of the people of Colorado, I look forward to working to protect access to public lands while maintaining our state's scenic beauty and ensuring that Colorado's sportsmen heritage thrives."
"The third Congressional District has some of America's greatest natural treasures and enormous opportunities for the many sportsmen-conservationists that live within it, I even hunted there late last year and harvested a mule deer," said Jeff Crane, President of the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation. "We thank Congressman Tipton for joining the Caucus and look forward to his working on sportsmen's issues in the 112th Congress."
