Protect Washington Sportsmen By Restoring Sensible Management
Friday, May 2, 2003
SB 5179 would help protect Washington’s sportsmen by restoring sensible management to the state’s wildlife populations. This measure overwhelmingly passed the legislature, but is currently seeing opposition in the Governor’s office. Due to an abundance of calls from anti-hunting groups, Governor Gary Locke (D) is considering vetoing this important bill. In order to make sure SB 5179 gets the signature it needs, please contact the Governor at (800) 562-6000 and urge him to "SUPPORT" SB 5179.
