WASHINGTON, DC – This week, U.S. Representative Austin Scott (R-GA-08) was named a co-chair of the bipartisan, bicameral Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC) for the 116th Congress. Rep. Scott will serve as co-chair with U.S. Representative Marc Veasey (D-TX-33), U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), and U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-NE).
“Having grown up in South Georgia, hunting and fishing are much more than hobbies for me; they’re a way of life. I am honored to serve as House Co-Chair of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus for the 116th Congress, and I look forward to continuing to protect the rights of America’s sportsmen and women and advance conservation priorities with my fellow Sportsmen’s Caucus leaders in the coming months,” said Rep. Scott.
The bipartisan CSC has grown into one of the largest and most effective caucuses in the United States Congress with nearly 300 members of the House and Senate representing almost all 50 states.
