This week, Congressman Blake Moore (UT-1) along with Congressman Jared Golden (ME-2) introduced the Tax Stamp Revenue Transfer for Wildlife and Recreation Act, a bill to reallocate the funding generated from tax stamp processing for the purpose of enhancing wildlife and habitat conservation and recreation programs. Currently, this revenue is deposited into the US Treasury with no specific direction.
“Safari Club International applauds the introduction of the Tax Stamp Revenue Transfer for Wildlife and Recreation Act. Expediting ATF processing while directly benefiting conservation is a win-win for all hunters and wildlife. Thank you Congressman Moore for your leadership”. Ben Cassidy, Executive Vice President, Safari Club International
Under Congressman Moore’s proposal, 85% of this tax revenue would now go directly to; Pittman Robertson Wildlife Restoration Trust Fund to support wildlife conservation, law enforcement, hunter recruitment, and other conservation focused activity, and; to the development, maintenance, and operation of recreational shooting ranges.
Safari Club thanks Congressmen Moore and Golden for this important legislation and for finding new and creative ways to bolster American wildlife conservation and range accessibility.
