Several outdoors organizations, including B.A.S.S., sent a letter today to the nation's leaders, asking that they recognize the importance and value of conservation programs in the upcoming budget negotiations.
B.A.S.S. was among several outdoor organizations that petitioned Washington to exempt Sport Fish Restoration funds from sequestration.
Two major bass fishing conservation issues -- access and lead bans -- are on the table in the Sportsmen's Heritage Act of 2012. B.A.S.S. and 39 other outdoors organizations have signed on in support of it.
