Rep. Anita Kulik, D-Allegheny, has been appointed majority chair of the House Game and Fisheries Committee for the 2023-24 legislative session.
“Pennsylvania is a haven for hunters and anglers with its robust and vibrant natural resources,” Kulik said. “It is an honor and privilege to be chair of a committee that prides itself on furthering legislation that focuses on continued stewardship of Pennsylvania’s wildlife and outdoor resources, while also enhancing outdoor recreational opportunities for current and future generations.”
The House Game and Fisheries Committee works with the state Game and Fish and Boat commissions, which are both independent entities that are largely self-funded by license purchases and fees, to review bills that ensure the interests of hunters and anglers are well represented.
“Sportsmen and women have long heard the call of the outdoors here in Pennsylvania, and as chair of this committee, I will work to honor their voices when it comes to hunting, fishing and wildlife-related issues and policies implemented by the Game Commission and the Fish and Boat Commission,” she said.
Kulik has served on the Game and Fisheries Committee since 2019. Kulik is a regular columnist with Gazette 2.0 and made her announcement March 7.
