Congress is currently considering legislation that would reauthorize the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund (SFRBTF).

Since 1950, the Sport Fish Restoration program has provided billions of dollars to support state fish and wildlife agencies. It funds fisheries conservation and restoration projects as well as boating infrastructure and improved access to fishing.

And that’s good for your bottom line.

The SFRBTF is funded in part by the federal excise tax on fishing equipment paid by the sportfishing industry. We support this tax because we know it’s being put to good use to benefit recreational fishing and therefore the sportfishing industry. Please help support this bill and ensure this program’s success continues into the future.

Send a message to your U.S. Representative today and urge them to support the Sport Fish Restoration and Recreational Boating Safety Act of 2019.
