The National Marine Manufacturers Association is asking its members to support the Recreational Fishing and Hunting Heritage and Opportunities Act, which would increase access to angling, hunting and recreational shooting on federal lands by prioritizing these activities within agencies' land management plans.

The bill would require that federal lands be operated as "open-until-closed" with respect to recreational access and that any new regulations, management plans or land use initiatives be evaluated to minimize their impact on traditional outdoors activities, such as fishing, the NMMA said.
