    WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Hoeven, chairman of the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Committee, on (23 April 2015) announced that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will no longer require U.S hunters travelling internationally to obtain an IRS identification number in order to bring personal weapons on hunting trips outside the U.S. At a meeting with U.S. CBP Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske, Hoeven secured a commitment from the agency to return to the paper process used by international hunters for years, while updates are made to the automated reporting system for exporting weapons. Kerlikowske said the agency’s web site would be updated.
