The bill includes language that seeks to prevent a federal ban on lead in recreational fishing tackle and would ensure that future regulations on fishing tackle are based on scientific fact.

The bill also would increase access to angling, hunting and recreational shooting on federal lands by prioritizing the activities within agencies' land management plans.
