Sen. Tammy Baldwin hosts roundtable discussion with Wisconsin hunters

On Tuesday, Democratic Senator Tammy Baldwin hosted a roundtable discussion with hunters and sportsmen in Marathon County regarding the Land and Water Conservation Fund. While at the discussion, she made her stance clear about allowing future generations to carry on Wisconsin’s traditions of hunting, fishing, and other outdoor actives.

Although this is legislation that both Republicans and Democrats have supported in the past, Sen. Baldwin says other politicians would like to see the funding go elsewhere.

The Land and Water Conservation Authorization and Funding Act safeguards natural areas and water resources for recreation opportunities. Sen. Baldwin says a decrease in funding would hurt hunting season in Wisconsin and other outdoor activities.

“I think one of the holdups is that there are some proposals to refocus the use of those funds in a way that others object too,” stated Sen Tammy Baldwin. “We just want to make sure that those funds are available and that the public has access to public land. I want to protect our natural resources and wildlife habitats.”
