Wisconsin to get $36.5 Million for Conservation Programs
Wisconsin will receive $36.5 million for conservation programs and projects in 2015, part of a $1.15 billion apportionment of excise tax revenues to states from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The funding comes from the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration and Sport Fish Restoration programs, also known as Pittman-Robertson and Dingell-Johnson, respectively, for the laws that established them.

Under the programs, the federal government collects excise taxes on firearms, ammunition, archery equipment, fishing tackle, electric boat motors and motorboat fuel and distributes it to the states for use by fish and wildlife agencies.

The funds support fish and wildlife conservation and recreation projects that benefit all Americans, the USFWS said in a statement announcing the distributions. The money can be used to pay for staff salaries, research projects, habitat work, shooting ranges, hunter education and boat ramps, to list some examples.
