Houston, TX –Houston Safari Club (HSC) has announced the formation of a Political Action Committee (PAC). Houston Safari Club (HSC) is a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization dedicated to legislative and policy initiatives that may affect the future of hunting.
HSC supports initiatives that protect the tradition of hunting and hunters’ rights. We take an active role in efforts to affect policy, protocols and legislation. HSC collaborates with legislators, key opinion leaders, policy groups, professional organizations and governments at home and abroad. The HSC-PAC was established to support pro-hunting legislators, legislation, and policy.
“As the President of HSC, I am very excited that we have established the HSC-PAC” said JD Burrows. “HSC has a high level of involvement in various communities. Our expertise and legacy in hunting and conservation resonate with policy makers, and our input and opinion are often sought out by legislators”. “I call on all of those interested in hunting and wildlife conservation to get involved in the HSC-PAC”.
Hunting is our legacy. It is at the core of what we do and who we are. It has been said that you better get involved in politics or politics will dictate your future. This is especially true in the hunting community. As hunters, we have challenges on many fronts. We need to be proactive, both in fundraising and involvement. HSC can be an influencing force in the legislative community, and we need to make sure our voices are heard in Washington. To donate to the HSC-PAC and show your support the future of hunting, go to HSC-PAC.org.
Contributions will be used in connection with a federal election and directed to campaigns and candidates that support pro-hunting legislation and policy. Contributions are not deductible for Federal income tax purposes. In compliance with Federal law, the HSC-PAC must use its best efforts to obtain, maintain and submit the name, mailing address, occupation and name of employer of individuals whose contributions exceed $200 during an election cycle.
