The Wisconsin Chapter of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers applauds U.S. Representatives Ron Kind (D-WI) and Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) for introducing the Chronic Wasting Disease Management Act. This bill would provide wildlife management agencies across the country with desperately needed resources to manage and control the spread of CWD. We would like to thank Reps. Kind and Sensenbrenner for working together on this bipartisan effort and for choosing to lead in the fight against CWD.
Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) introduced the Senate companion, S. 689.
The Wisconsin chapter of BHA would like to encourage the Wisconsin delegation, Reps. Bryan Steil, Mark Pocan, Gwen Moore, Glenn Grothman, Sean Duffy, and Mike Gallagher and Sens. Tammy Baldwin and Ron Johnson to support their respective bills.
