Federal sports funding
U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke announced Tuesday that $1.1 billion in annual funding for state wildlife agencies from revenues generated by federal Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration acts are being distributed. Tennessee is to receive $30 million. “For nearly eight decades, the nation’s hunters and anglers have generated billions of dollars to protect wildlife and habitat simply by purchasing items that help them engage in the outdoor activities they enjoy,” Zinke said. “Their support has helped state wildlife agencies protect our country’s environmental legacy for future generations of hunters, fishers, recreationists, and conservationists.” The funds, which are distributed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, support critical state conservation and outdoor recreation projects. They are derived from excise taxes paid by the hunting, shooting, boating and angling industries on firearms, bows and ammunition and sport fishing tackle, some boat engines, and small engine fuel.
