WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Congressman Dan Boren announced today that he has been named vice chairman of the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus for the 110th Congress. Boren has been a member of the bipartisan group to promote and protect hunting and fishing traditions since he came to Congress in 2005.

"I am honored to serve as vice chairman of the Sportsmen's Caucus," Boren said. "As an avid sportsman with a deep appreciation for the outdoors, I look forward to taking a leadership role in Congress to protect and promote issues that are such an important part of Oklahoma's heritage."

The Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus was formed to advance and protect the interests of sportsmen across the country. The caucus - which includes more than half of Congress - supports hunting, fishing and conservation. The caucus also coordinates educational briefings and outings for members of Congress and staff who might not otherwise have exposure to sportsmen's issues.

"Sportsmen and the industries that serve them owe a debt of gratitude to the leaders of the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus. They work overtime to make sure sportsmen and the issues that affect us are protected in the halls of Congress," said Jeff Crane, president of the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation. "The Sportsmen's Caucus has always been effective in working together - not as Republican and Democrat, but as sportsmen and women."
