Due primarily to the spike in sales of firearms and ammunition in 2012, a record $882 million will be distributed to states this year for fish, wildlife and recreation projects, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced Thursday. Pittman-Robertson funding will provide an unprecedented $522.5 million to the states, up from a previous high of $473 million in 2010. The sport fish fund, under the Dingell-Johnson Act, will provide $359.9 million this year, up from $349.7 million in 2012. Paul A. Smith, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
