Sen. Udall calls for hearing for his bill to develop shooting ranges
 
Posted on February 7, 2012
 
Today, Mark Udall sent a letter with Senator Jim Risch (R-ID) to the Committee on Environment & Public Works's Chairwoman Barbara Boxer and Ranking Member James Inhofe, urging them to hold a hearing on his bill to develop shooting ranges open to the public. The Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act (S.1249), which has strong support from hunter and conservation organizations, would give states the flexibility to spend their already allotted Pittman Robertson funds to create or improve public shooting ranges. Holding a hearing on the bill is a step toward having it pass committee and ready to be taken up by the full Senate for a vote. Udall is also organizing Coloradans to support the effort to enhance opportunities for safe recreational shooting in our state; the petition is available HERE. http://markudall.senate.gov/shootingranges (http://markudall.senate.gov/shootingranges)
