• Members of the public who wish to speak with the Sporting Heritage Council should pre-register by sending an email to Scott Loomans  at least 24 hours prior to the meeting.

Discussion of U.S. House Bill HF8167 (Potential Action Item)
• This bill would repeal the excise taxes on firearms, ammunition, bows, and arrows, as well as the excise tax on transferring and making firearms under the National Firearm Act. Instead of using these excise taxes to fund Fish and Wildlife Restoration through the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act, the bill would instead establish a Wildlife Conservation and Restoration Subaccount, capped at $800M annually, funded through oil and gas revenues.
• Gauge interest from the Sporting Heritage Council to formally support the Pittman-Robertson Act and the fund’s importance in the context of the bill.
