Posted 2/25/2016


Kilgore, Texas - Feb. 25, 2016 – Yamaha Marine Group today praised U.S. Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01) for his support of H.R. 3094, the Gulf States Red Snapper Management Authority Act. By co-sponsoring the legislation, the Congressman signals strong support to the 234 employees of Skeeter Boats, a manufacturer of high performance fishing boats in Texas’s First District.

“We are extremely thankful to Congressman Gohmert for his support of H.R. 3094,” said Martin Peters, Manager, Government Relations. “Congressman Gohmert’s efforts to support Red Snapper management reform clearly demonstrate his commitment to job growth in Texas’s First District, and his support of sportsmen across the country.  America’s anglers and boaters truly owe the Congressman a debt of gratitude.”

Congressman Gohmert’s support of H.R. 3094 serves as further evidence that the legislation is gaining momentum in Congress. The Congressman’s position on the House Natural Resource Committee, the committee of jurisdiction for the legislation, places him in a strong position to support the legislation as it moves forward.
