WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, the United States House of Representatives passed H.R. 2406, the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act of 2015. This legislation includes a package of provisions that increases access to federal lands for sportsmen, cuts through burdensome regulations, and protects Second Amendment rights. Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) issued the following statement after the measure passed:
“The SHARE Act includes many important initiatives that will provide continued access to our nation’s abundant natural resources for our sportsmen and women across the United States.
We know that sportsmen’s activities have added over $90 billion to our national economy since 2011. That is one reason why I co-sponsored and supported this measure which will ensure our hunters, anglers, and recreational shooters are not hampered by burdensome federal regulations. Additionally, I am pleased that the SHARE Act protects the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners to carry on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recreational lands — including Lake Thurmond, Lake Lanier, and Lake Allatoona. I was proud to support this bill today which will preserve our nation’s legacy of outdoor sporting heritage for future generations.”

Help with a Federal Agency
One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help people with federal problems. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a person’s behalf to answer questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Please know that I cannot force an agency to act in favor of a constituent. However, I can help communicate the circumstances and request that they take appropriate actions to assist you.
