Senator Murkowski: New Bill Activity 2/8/2015

Congress.gov, an official resource for Congressional information recently introduced e-mail legislation alerts. One of the options is to see sponsored or cosponsored legislation by member. So I signed up for alerts from our Congressional Delegation and will share the e-mails here as I receive them.

Here’s the first e-mail I received from Murkowski (I added titles to bill numbers):

There has been activity on bills associated with Senator Lisa Murkowski.

Bills sponsored:

  • S. 387 – A bill to require the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration to use the definitions in section 40125 of title 49, United States Code, in determining whether an unmanned aircraft conducting aeronautical research flights qualifies for public aircraft status under that section, and for other purposes.
  • S. 405 – A bill to protect and enhance opportunities for recreational hunting, fishing, and shooting, and for other purposes.

Bills cosponsored:

  • S. 301 – A bill to require the Secretary of the Treasury to mint coins in commemoration of the centennial of Boys Town, and for other purposes.

If you have thoughts about any of these bills, please leave a comment.

  1. I wonder what is behind S. 405?

  2. In regard to SB 405, I was sent this today, which I guess, answers my above question:

    “The dreaded so-called “Sportsmen’s Act” is back.

    Yet again, a small faction of wealthy trophy hunters is pressuring your elected officials to allow the importation of threatened polar bear trophies from Canada. They also want to open millions of acres of public lands to sport hunting and commercial trapping, without evaluating possible implications on animals, habitat and Americans who enjoy our nation’s wild spaces. They are also fighting to keep pumping tons of toxic lead ammunition into the environment, poisoning the land and wildlife, even when non-lead ammo is readily available.”
