Oklahoma Senate Gives Final Approval to Right to Hunt Ballot Measure!

Tuesday, May 6, 2008

Please Call and Thank Your State Senator Today!

On Monday, May 5, the Oklahoma Senate passed Senate Joint Resolution 38, a measure authored by State Senator Glenn Coffee (R-30) and State Representative Randy Terril (R-53), by a vote of 46 to 0! With this vote Oklahoma voters will be asked to approve a State Constitutional amendment to protect the Right to Hunt, Fish and Harvest Game, in this November’s General Election. 

If passed by the voters this fall, Oklahomans will have established the nation's most comprehensive and meaningful constitutional protections for hunters and sportsmen. Such language will serve as a model for others states in our on-going efforts to defend our hunting heritage from attacks by well-funded, radical anti-hunting groups such as the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). SJR 38 provides that all future hunting regulations be established by the State Legislature and the Wildlife Conservation Commission, and that such regulation will be science-based and conducted by professionals and conservation experts.  

Please call and thank your Senator for voting in support of SJR 38 and protecting Oklahoma’s cherished heritage!  To find your State Senator please click here.
