Friday, May 4, 2007
On Thursday, May 3, the Missouri State Senate approved final passage of Senate Bill 225, the "Hunting Heritage Protection Areas Act," sponsored by State Senator Bill Stouffer (R-20) by a vote of 32 to 0.
SB225 will protect traditional hunting areas and wildlife habitat within the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers' 100-year flood plain, by prohibiting certain development, as well as preventing localities from banning hunting and the discharge of firearms in these areas.The passage of SB225 is essential to preserving Missouri's time-honored hunting and sporting heritage. This critically important legislation now moves to the State House of Representatives for consideration.
Please contact your State Representative at (573) 751-3824 and strongly encourage him or her to protect wildlife habitat and hunting by supporting and voting for SB225 without any amendments!
