Press Release

Richvale, CA – Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) today voted in favor of the Sportsmens’ Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act, which reasserts the rights of hunters and anglers to access public lands. H.R. 2406 passed on a 242-161 vote and will now be considered by the Senate.   

“We’re taking action today to protect the right of Americans to hunt and fish on their federal lands and roll back the incremental restrictions that have restricted their access,” said LaMalfa. “This measure requires National Forests to prioritize hunting and fishing access, prohibits federal regulation of lead ammunition and fishing equipment, and ensures that Americans across the country can continue to enjoy their public lands. Sportsmen and women have always been the foremost stewards of the outdoors, and this bill recognizes their continued contributions.”

Congressman Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing California’s First Congressional District, including Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou and Tehama Counties.
