Sen. Proos meets with St. Joseph County Conservation and Sportsman Club

LANSING, Mich. — Sen. John Proos spoke to the St. Joseph County Conservation and Sportsman Club (SJCC&SC) in Sturgis during their quarterly membership meeting in December.

Proos discussed the background of the Natural Resources Trust Fund and local projects, the effort to stop Asian carp, and term limits.

“It was an honor to speak to an outstanding group of outdoor enthusiasts, who are among our greatest custodians of Michigan’s natural resources,” said Proos, R-St. Joseph. “As a member of the Michigan Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus, I have seen how organizations like the St. Joseph County Conservation and Sportsman Club help conserve and preserve our great outdoors and our outdoor heritage.”

The SJCC&SC was established in 1937 to promote conservation, fishing and hunting and the safe, ethical participation in the shooting sports.

The Michigan Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus is a bipartisan, bicameral group of legislators who come together in support of sportsmen’s rights and to promote Michigan’s great outdoors.
