On Monday, May 22, Governor Jim Douglas (R) signed H 447. This legislation will protect Vermont's shooting ranges from lawsuits and municipal ordinances that may require ranges to be shut down.
Sponsored by Representative Joseph Krawczyk (R-Bennington-2-1) and Representative Mary Morrissey (R-Bennington-2-2), H 447 passed the House with a vote of 126 to 7 and unanimously passed the Senate with a vote of 28-0.
Thanks to your help, Vermont’s hunting and shooting heritage will
continue for years to come!
