Department of the Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke issued two secretarial orders which expand access to public lands and increase fishing, hunting and recreation opportunities nationwide. The two secretarial orders include:
- Secretarial Order No. 3346 overturns the recent ban lead ammunition and fish tackle used on Fish and Wildlife Service lands, waters, and facilities.
- Secretarial Order No. 3347 advances conservation stewardship, improves game and habitat management, and increases outdoor recreation opportunities by directing bureaus and agencies to immediately identify areas where recreation and fishing can be expanded.
This package of secretarial orders will expand access for outdoor enthusiasts and also make sure the community’s voice is heard.
