Time to SHARE?

Rep. Latta's (R., OH) Sportsmen's Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act of 2013 is set to be debated by the House. Essentially the measure enhances hunting, fishing and shooting opportunities on federal lands, but also takes particular powers away from federal authorities in the process. 

The Obama Administration has noted they support passing sportsman and recreation legislation, but are opposed to the bill as it's currently written, stating that: 
While the Administration strongly supports the goal of promoting recreational fishing, hunting, and shooting opportunities, and recognizes the economic and community benefits associated with hunting and fishing, it opposes this bill.  These important recreational opportunities abound on public lands and are valued by millions of Americans who hunt and fish on public lands, forests, parks, and refuges.  Accordingly, the Administration supports certain titles of H.R. 3590, but opposes others which include harmful provisions that impair Federal management of federally-owned lands and undermine important existing public land and environmental laws, rules, and processes.
