Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney (R,C,IĖNew Hartford) welcomed sportsmen from across the state to the Annual Sportsmenís Legislative Awareness Breakfast held in Albany. Co-sponsored by the National Assembly of Sportsmenís Caucuses, National Wild Turkey Federation, Conservation Alliance of New York, New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, New York State Conservation Council, and The Sportsman Channel, this annual event helps raise awareness of this $1.5 billion industry and helps to protect Second Amendment rights.

ďAlong with Januaryís Sportsmen and Outdoor Recreation Legislative Awareness Day, this event helps continue the dialogue between sportsmen and women and their representatives here in Albany. Protecting the traditions in our Upstate communities, including heritage sports, is an important priority, and I would like to thank the many hunters and anglers from Oswego and Oneida counties who came to the event and met with me,Ē said Tenney.

In addition to attending the legislative breakfast, Tenney met privately with a variety of sportsmen groups from the 115th Assembly District, including Wheelin Sportsmen, the New York State Conservation Council, Inc., Federated Sportsmenís Clubs of Oneida County, and Oneida County Sportsmen.
