Montana Bill Seeks To Divert Federal Funds To Private Hunting Preserves
Friday, February 11, 2005
HB 378, sponsored by Representative Jonathon Windy Boy (D-32), would divert 7% of federal wildlife funds currently used to aid Montana wildlife programs to tribal wildlife programs. This measure is without built-in auditing procedures and will only benefit private preserves that are NOT open to public hunting. Please call the members of the House Fish, Wildlife and Parks Committee and respectfully urge them to oppose this legislation. For a list of committee members and their phone numbers, please call NRA-ILA`s Grassroots Division at (800) 392-8683.
