Assemblyman Andrew Raia (R,I,C-East Northport) attended the second annual Sportsmen and Outdoor Recreation Legislative Awareness Day this week. Held in Albany, the event, sponsored by the Assembly Minority Conference, attracted thousands of sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts from all across the state. During the day, Raia had an opportunity to speak with John Cushman, whose Long Island-based group Sportsmenís Association for Firearms Education Inc. traveled to Albany to set up a display booth for the event.

ďLong Islandís extensive shoreline makes fishing and other outdoor sports a vital part of our economy. The legislative awareness day was a huge success and it allowed me to speak with constituents about their interest in outdoor sports and legislation pertaining to it,Ē said Raia.
