JEFFERSON CITY – State Rep. Linda Black has been elected to serve on the Executive Council of the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses. She was elected in November during its annual conference in Bend, Oregon.
“It is a tremendous honor to be elected to serve on the council,” said Black, R-Desloge. “The NASC has continually appreciated the preventive measures Missouri has taken to keep our constitutional rights from negatively being impacted.”
“Representatives from Missouri have a lot to offer the NASC in regards to national policy, protecting hunter’s rights, and conservation awareness. I will strive to help grow and enhance sportsmen membership in both urban and suburban areas of this state; to increase appreciation and understanding of our sporting heritage; and to continue to fight for the preservation of our hunters and anglers.”
Created in 2004 under the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, the NASC network of legislative sportsmen’s caucuses has increased their representation throughout 45 states, with a combined membership of over 2,000 legislators. Working with legislators, it is the goal of the Foundation to make sure there is a continual voice for sportsmen and women throughout government.
In addition to her appointment, Black will also continue to serve as co-chair of the Missouri Sportsman Issue Development, a bi-partisan caucus made up of members from both the Missouri House and Senate.
