 Some components of 'Sportsmen's Act' concern environmental groups

Today, the U.S. Senate will vote on, and likely pass, Montana U.S. Sen. Jon Tester's “Sportsmen's Act of 2012,” a grab bag of bills dealing with hunting, fishing, conservation and public access measures, but environmental groups said there are problems with some of the measures, including one that would preclude the EPA from banning the use of lead in ammunition.
