Connecticut SB 605 Legislative Update!

Friday, March 17, 2006

SB 605 could be voted on as early as this coming Monday, March 20.  SB 605 allows the Department of Environmental Protection to designate areas that would be open to Sunday hunting on private property.  Unfortunately, the Connecticut General Assembly’s Environment Committee omitted important language when drafting SB 605.  As drafted, the bill would regrettably apply only to bow hunters and would not include individuals who hunt with firearms.  NRA anticipated SB 605 would include rifles and shotguns.  Without an amendment, Sunday hunting in Connecticut will not be open to individuals who hunt with rifles and shotguns. 

Please call the Co-Chairmen of the Environment Committee, Senator Bill Finch (D-22), at (800) 842-1420, and Representative Richard Roy (D-119), at (800) 842-8267, and ask them to support expanding Sunday hunting opportunities beyond bow hunting only.
