Washington, D.C. (September 13, 2017) The House Natural Resources Subcommittee today passed H.R. 3668, the Sportsmen's Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act, or SHARE Act.

"The tradition and culture of hunting, fishing, and recreational shooting is under attack all across the West. Here in New Mexico, we are all too familiar with the impacts of decreased access and overly burdensome regulations on federal lands. It is vital to protect the lifestyle and rights of sportsmen and women," stated Rep. Pearce. "The rich culture and heritage of the West is something we are proud of in New Mexico, having access to lands is vital for the continuation of outdoor recreation as our ancestors had before us."

The SHARE Act prevents federal agencies like the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management from restricting access to federal lands for hunting, fishing, and recreational shooting. This bill also simplifies regulations for hearing protection and noise mitigation equipment for firearms.
