Arizona State House Committee to Hear Pro-Hunting Legislation!
Friday, March 7, 2008
HCR 2037, sponsored by State Representative Jerry Weiers (R-12), a measure that would protect the right to hunt and fish in Arizona through a constitutional amendment, cleared a major hurdle by passing out of the House Natural Resources and Public Safety Committee on Wednesday, March 5. The 6-3 vote was a strong indication that the calls and emails from NRA members were a key factor in the passage of the resolution.
The bill is now headed to the House Rules Committee and should it pass it will then be heard on the House floor. Please take the time to contact your State Representative today and ask that they support HCR2037 when it comes before them.To contact your State Representative please click here.
