As you may recall, NRA-ILA issued an alert to Arizona’s sportsmen that the legislature was considering cutting $145,000 from the wildlife restoration and enhancement fund, funds that are used to restore habitats for game species. Thank you to everyone who called their State Legislators in response to the alert.
Because of your calls, NRA was able to work with the legislature to ensure that the program stays alive and completely re-funded by 2010. Like many states, Arizona is facing serious budget shortfalls, and the government of Arizona has been forced to make serious financial cuts to everything from childcare to law enforcement.
Thank you for contacting your State Legislators and please continue to check www.NRAILA.org and your email for updates throughout the session.
