Inflation Reduction Act would impact New York sportsmen, women

Known as the Inflation Reduction Act, the reconciliation bill passed by the US Senate last weekend includes $369 billion in energy and natural resource investments ostensibly aimed at combating climate change, according to the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership.

Since seeing is believing, I’ve decided to delve into the bill to enjoy all it offers to the sports community. That turned out to be much easier said than done. The bill – HR 5376 – is 335,000 words spread across 970 pages, depending on how you format it.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, speaks during a press conference on the Inflation Reduction Act outside the US Capitol August 4, 2022 in Washington, DC.

The Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership was formed on July 30, 2002. Its primary purpose is to ensure quality hunting and fishing for all Americans by protecting important habitats, productive hunting grounds, and preferred fishing spots for this and future generations. To conclude, the organization has spent the last year promoting legislation to be included in the Anti-Inflation Act that it believes will benefit hunters and anglers. As for the result, I remain skeptical.
