Post  Backlash on Wed Feb 27, 2013 6:43 pm

Sequestration is threatening to impact everyone including sportsmen and the wildlife and fish that they have fought to restore and conserve for so many years. Should this sequestration go into effect on Friday state wildlife agency will have 7.6% or $74 Million in federal funding with held from their annual budgets. These funds are monies collected from the tax levied on the sale of hunting and fishing gear that sportsmen have been paying since 1937. While these taxes are exempt from sequestration the Office Management ond Budget has interpretted the Budget Control Act of 2011 can not be appropriated duing sequestration.
