LAKES Act Launched in House

For years the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) has collected recreation fees at most public-use facilities on Corps properties around the country, including boat ramps. Instead of using those fees for the upkeep or improvement of those boating access sites, the fees have been diverted to the general treasury of the United States. Congressmen Westerman, Huffman, and Womack recently introduced the LAKES Act, which will ensure a majority of the fees collected from anglers and other visitors will go back to that particular water project to enhance their recreational experiences.

"There is no better way to help assure the strength of CSF and future opportunities for hunters and anglers."

NASCAR Hall of Famer and CSF Board Chairman Richard Childress joined the CSF Board of Directors to bring the same level of enthusiasm and dedication he brings to racing to ensuring the rights of hunters and anglers. Childress, an avid outdoorsman, is as passionate about giving back as he is about hunting and fishing. To keep supporting CSF well into the future, Mr. Childress became a CSF Heritage Fund Donor. Please follow this link to learn more about Mr. Childress' story and how you too can provide a voice for America's sportsmen and women via planned giving. 

Our outdoor heritage needs YOU!  Get involved today so we can keep fighting for tomorrow.
