Congressman Billy Long (R) Missouri Named SCI Federal Legislator of the Year
On Feb. 5, 2016, Safari Club International was pleased to present its Federal Legislator of the Year Award to Congressman Billy Long (R-MO-07) for the year 2015. The award was presented to Congressman Long at the 44th Annual Hunters Convention. Congressman Long has worked tirelessly to protect the rights of hunters nationwide during his time in Congress, and SCI was proud to recognize his efforts.
Congressman Long is a lifelong hunter, an outstanding SCI member, and belongs to the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC). As a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee Congressman Long was instrumental in resolving the troublesome “green-tip” ammunition issue.
SCI is grateful to Congressman Long for his work on behalf of hunters everywhere. We are proud to have had the opportunity to honor that work by presenting the Congressman with the award for Federal Legislator of the Year. As an organization we remain committed to working diligently on behalf of hunter’s rights and conservation for years to come. Our work would not be possible without the help of Members like Congressman Long.
