Rep. Green’s Bipartisan Bill Protecting Shooting Sports Signed Into Law 

WASHINGTON—Today, Rep. Mark Green released the following statement after President Biden signed his Protecting Hunting Heritage and Education Act into law:

Green said, “I appreciate the President signing this bill into law. Today, politics was put aside, and our children are the real winners. Student athletes deserve to take part in shooting sports without fear of their programs losing funding. If there’s anything both sides of the aisle can unite on, it’s protecting students’ ability to get involved in school programs that foster an appreciation for nature and benefit their development.”

“I hope Americans see the incredible outpouring of support for our student athletes,” continued Green. “Life-changing opportunities come from participating in these programs—and our children are better because of it.”
