The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) is proud to announce the new leadership of the bipartisan Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC) for the 113th Congress. Leadership positions in the CSC are selected by fellow sportsmen-legislators in the Caucus.
Serving as the Senate Co-Chairs are Senators Kay Hagan (NC) and John Thune (SD) and the Vice-Chairs are Senators Mark Pryor (AR) and James Risch (ID). The House of Representatives Caucus Co-Chairs are Representatives Robert Latta (OH) and Bennie Thompson (MS), and the Vice-Chairs are Representatives Tim Walz (MN) and Robert Wittman (VA). Sens. Hagan and Thune and Reps. Risch and Latta all served in leadership roles during the 112th Congress.
"Historically, members of the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus have a proven track record of promoting policies that protect and advance hunting, recreational fishing and shooting, trapping and professional fish and wildlife management. With new leadership guiding the way, we expect no less in the 113th Congress," said Jeff Crane, President of the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation.
The new leadership of the CSC will guide the nearly 300 members of the Caucus in efforts to champion our sportsmen’s heritage in the halls of Congress. To view the full roster of the CSC, please click here.
