Senator Thune oppose President’s plan to block funds for schools’ hunting & fishing programs

WASHINGTON, D.C.(KMIT)- South Dakota Senator John Thune took to the Senate floor this week to express his opposition to the Biden administration’s plan to block federal funds for schools’ hunting and archery programs.

Thune talked about his own hunting experiences.

He says it should be a local control issue for school districts.

Thune recently introduced legislation that would clarify that the prohibition of the use of federal education funds for certain weapons does not apply to funds for sports clubs, teams, trainings, or related activities provided for students.
