Yesterday, the state House Natural Resources Committee passed House Joint Resolution 2001 by a 17 to 4 vote. HJR 2001, which is the House companion of Senate Joint Resolution 2001, is now headed to the House floor for consideration. SJR 2001 and HJR 2001 would rescind the Iowa Natural Resources Commission’s unjustified and dangerous regulation banning the use of traditional ammunition for dove hunting. SJR 2001, which has passed in the state Senate Natural Resources and Environment Committee, is currently awaiting floor action in the state Senate.
Here are three reasons why the use of traditional ammunition should NOT be banned:
At this time, please contact your state Representative and state Senator and urge them to vote for HJR 2001 and SJR 2001 on the floor of their respective bodies. This legislation is crucial to protect the use of traditional ammunition and stop anti-hunting extremists from attacking a means of hunting shown to have no population-level impacts on wildlife.
