Ranking Member of House Natural Resources Committee Releases Statement on EPA Consideration of Ammunition Ban
Doc Hastings (R-WA), ranking member of the United States House of Representatives Natural Resources Committee, released a statement regarding the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) consideration of a petition from the Center for Biological Diversity to ban all traditional ammunition. “This potential ban on lead bullets is another massive power grab by the EPA and the latest example of the Obama Administration’s assault on Rural America,” Hastings wrote. “Mandating non-lead bullets will greatly increase costs for hunters, sport shooters and fishermen and deal a devastating blow to the outdoor sportsmen and recreation industry during these difficult economic times. The EPA’s job-killing policies are threatening the livelihood of millions of Americans across the country.”
