Legislation Would Reward Hunters For Donations

Western Illinois Congresswoman Cheri Bustos supporting bipartisan legislation that would reward hunters who donate wild game to food banks.

The bipartisan Wild Game Donation Act of 2015 would provide hunters with charitable deductions for the costs associated with donating processed deer, moose, and other wild game meats to food-based charities. In addition, the legislation would allow game processors who participate in the program to pass savings on to local food-based charities through tax-deductions of their own.
