Rep. Kevin Wallace Elected to NASC Executive Council
OKLAHOMA CITY – During the 20 th Annual National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC) Sportsman-Legislator Summit held in Dewey Beach, DE, Rep. Kevin Wallace, R-Wellston, was elected to serve a full, two-year term as a member of the NASC Executive Council (EC). Established in 2004 by the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF), NASC provides the synergy to protect and advance hunting, angling, recreational shooting, trapping, and professional fish and wildlife management in state capitols. With more than 2,000 legislators who are members of state legislative sportsmen’s caucuses from all 50 states, this unprecedented network of pro-sportsmen legislators provides the nexus and support among the state caucuses that is critical to the successful advancement of pro-sportsmen policies across the nation. Last year, Rep. Wallace was elected as one of three alternates who serve one-year terms alongside the full, 12-member EC. Working with staff at CSF, the EC assists with the establishment and promotion of pro-sportsmen ideas, and facilitates the sharing of information between state caucuses, conservation partners and allied industries. The EC plays a critical role in the protection and advancement of hunting and angling rights and the continuation of our sportsmen’s heritage by establishing the activities of NASC, assisting with policy development, setting guidelines for affiliated state caucuses, as well as media outreach intended to highlight the role hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping play in supporting conservation policies that also benefit our nation’s social and economic well-being. "I've spent much of my life enjoying hunting, fishing and other outdoor sports, and much of my time in public service making sure others are free to enjoy these pursuits as well," Wallace said. "It's truly an honor, therefore, to be elected to serve a full two-year term as a member of the NASC Executive Council. I've already learned so much from the assembly, and look forward to sharing this national perspective with my peers in Oklahoma. With Oklahoma's robust outdoor sporting community, I know we'll have much to bring to the table as well." Rep. Wallace also serves as co-chair of the Oklahoma Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus.
