Currently serving in his tenth term, State Assemblyman Clifford Crouch has represented the 122th District in the New York State Assembly since 1995. He joined the New York Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus in 2007.
Assemblyman Crouch is a champion of pro-sportsmen’s legislation. He recently co-sponsored a bill, A00792, which would create a legislative task force on outdoor education and recreation. This bill would help encourage New York’s youth to pursue hunting and fishing, ensuring that the sporting traditions in New York continue for generation to come. This legislative task force would also benefit residents of New York by promoting the conservation, as well as promoting the health benefits of spending time outdoors.
Assemblyman Crouch’s also sponsored, A00817 – a bill that would establish a non-trail snowmobile registration process for the sole purpose of gaining access to hunting and fishing areas.
New York currently has over two million hunters living in the state, which is the third highest in the country. Annually, New York sportsmen and women contribute over $4.95 billion to the state’s economy, supporting 56,000 jobs. The massive impact that hunters and anglers have on New York’s economy illustrates the importance of the work done by Assemblyman Crouch, the New York Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus and the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus members from New York.
