The following bill was introduced by Lorence Wenke.
HB-4497 was introduced and needs to be addressed right away before it even leaves committee. This is an Anti-Hunting, Fishing, and Trapping Bill.

Please take the time to contact the sponsors of the bill listed below, your representative, and the Tourism, Outdoor Recreation and Natural Resources Committee members.
Ask the sponsors to reconsider their anti-hunting, fishing, and trapping stance. Ask your representative to take your position into consideration and let the other members of the house know about it including the committee and sponsors and finally ask the committee members to unanimously reject this bill outright.
