Update on Tennessee Right to Hunt and Fish Amendment!

Friday, March 21, 2008

The Tennessee State House unanimously passed House Joint Resolution 108 with NRA-backed amendments on Monday, March 17. 

This
important legislation, sponsored by State Senator Doug Jackson (D-25) and State Representative Joe McCord (R-08), proposes an amendment to the Tennessee Constitution recognizing the citizens’ right to hunt and fish.  The final language of the Resolution incorporates NRA’s model language and provides truly meaningful protections against the radical anti-hunting activists who seek to ban all hunting in America.  The ultimate adoption of this constitutional amendment will preserve Tennessee’s rich hunting and fishing traditions for generations to come. 

Due to the fact that the Tennessee Constitution stipulates that any change of the constitution must be passed in two consecutive General Assemblies before it can be placed on the ballot for consideration, this has been a long and difficult process. 

With the passage of HJR108 out of the House, we are another step closer. 
HJR108 must be heard and passed in next year’s 106th General Assembly, the final step of the process.  This is good news as we look forward to continued success in the subsequent General Assembly and HJR108’s placement on the 2010 ballot.
