Kind, Sensenbrenner Introduce CWD Management Bill

U.S. Representatives Ron Kind and Jim Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin introduced a bipartisan bill Wednesday to manage and prevent the spread of Chronic Wasting Disease. The Chronic Wasting Disease Management Act will support state and tribal efforts to develop and implement management strategies and support research regarding the causes of CWD. The bill will also support methods to control the spread of the disease. As of February, CWD has been confirmed in 26 states, and there are serious concerns the disease will continue to spread across the country. In Wisconsin, 1,049 deer tested positive for CWD in 2018 in 19 counties. Senator Jon Tester of Montana introduced companion legislation in the senate. A number of wildlife and sportsmen organizations also voiced their support for the bill, including the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation and the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation.
