The state’s proposed budget is now under consideration in the House Appropriations and Sen. Finance Cmtes., that includes dramatic reductions in the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries’ budget. These cuts could lead to a decimation of lands and facilities available to Virginia sportsmen. Please contact your Del. and Sen. at (804) 786-0000, and urge them to maintain the Department’s current budget. You may locate and contact your lawmakers by using the "Write Your Reps" feature.
