The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries ( LDWF ) Archery in Louisiana Schools ( ALAS ) and school hunter education programs will continue to be federally funded once the bipartisan bill is signed by the President, according to the Protecting Hunting Heritage and Education Act( H. R. 5110 ), which the U.S. Congress passed.
The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act( BSCA ), which allowed federal funding for school hunter education, archery in schools, and other significant educational enrichment programs to be withheld, had unintended consequences.
A resolution to ask Louisiana’s Congressional Delegation to force the U.S. Department of Education to reverse its decision to limit federal funding for those programs during its September meeting was approved by the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission( LWFC ).
Robert Shadoin, director of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, said,” We’re satisfied that Congress has taken action to ensure that these important programs continue to be funded.” One of our company’s top priorities is to educate the next generation of outdoor-loving women and men in our position. and achieving that goal is being led by ALAS and bird’s education. ”
