After much drama, The Senate advanced the Sportsmen’s Act on Thursday morning in an 84-12 vote. Behind closed door discussions, and lots of parliamentary procedures the Sportsmen’s Act of 2012 is scheduled for final action on Monday November 26th at 5:30 PM. There's still some amendments that both sides need to agree on before it is passed and apparently there is a substitute bill on behalf of Tester which replaces the original bill and will serve as the final version of S. 3525.
This is a huge advance for hunters, anglers and the conservation of fish and wildlife. To keep up to date on what is happening with the bill read here.
