COLUMBUS - 

Senator Joe Uecker (R-Miami Township) recently announced the formation of the leadership team for the General Assembly’s Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus:
 
Senate Co-Chair Senator Joe Uecker (R-Miami Township)
Senate Co-Chair: Senator Lou Gentile (D-Steubenville)
House Co-Chair: Representative Dorothy Pelanda (R- Marysville)
House Co-Chair Representative Nick Barborak (D-Lisbon)

“I am pleased to have the opportunity to work with Senator Gentile, Representative Pelanda, and Representative Barborak. I look forward to partnering with them to advocate for and preserve the interests of Ohio’s Sportsmen and women,” said Senator Uecker.
 
Sportsmen represent a strong constituency in Ohio. According to the Congressional Sportsmen Foundation, Ohio ranks 8th in total sportsmen nationwide. Ohio has 1.56 million hunters and anglers who spend $2.75 billion annually and support 46,825 jobs.
 
Senator Uecker announced the reorganization of the Ohio Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus in April to give a unified voice to a constituency that is vital to improving Ohio’s economy. Since April, the caucus has already fought to preserve the interests of Ohio’ s Sportsmen by working with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources to address concerns raised by the sportsmen’s community regarding proposed changes to deer hunting regulations. Senator Uecker will continue to work with caucus members during the summer recess to identify other caucus priorities as 2013 comes to a close.
