Washington, D.C.— Today, Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) reaffirmed his ongoing support for sportsmen and women.

Emmer said, “Minnesota’s outdoor tradition is integral to our state’s history. As a lifelong sportsman, ensuring that our wildlife is conserved and Second Amendment rights are defended is of the highest importance.

“I am proud to protect this important part of our state’s heritage,” Emmer concluded.

Minnesota ranks sixth nationally in total number of sportsmen, and the state’s hunters and anglers contribute more than $3 billion per year, supporting more than 47,900 jobs.

So far this Congress, Emmer has advanced sportsmen’s priorities by:

  • Cosponsoring the RETURN Our Constitutional Rights Act to repeal excise taxes on firearms and ammunition, as well as bows and arrows;
  • Cosponsoring a resolution to maintain the protections established in the 2020 Navigable Waters Protections Rule and reverse the overly burdensome Waters of the United States regulations implemented by the Biden Administration;
  • Sending a letter in support of returning management of gray wolves back to the states.

Emmer is a member of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus.
