NSSF (National Shooting Sports Foundation) has honored US Rep. Bob Latta (R-Ohio) as its 2013 Legislator of the Year during the firearms industry's annual Congressional Fly-In in Washington, DC. He was instrumental in the introduction last fall of the Sportsmen's Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act. It was a legislative package to safeguard and promote America's hunting and fishing traditions.
Latta is co-chairman of the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus and advocate of hunter, sportsmen and sportswomen's issues. The bill passed early this year in the House and Latta has worked diligently with the Senate to pass the policies into law to continue outdoor legacies of American heritage and traditions.
