Arizona Bill Proposed to Change Requirements to Become Fish & Game Commissioner

Friday, February 20, 2009

House Bill 2235, sponsored by State Representatives Jerry Weiers (R-12), David Gowan (R-30), Steve Montenegro (R-12) and Daniel Patterson (D-29), is currently in the House of Representatives Natural Resources and Rural Affairs Committee.  HB 2235 will change the requirements to become a fish and game commissioner to ensure that true hunters are being represented on the board.  This bill would require that prospective appointees have possessed a hunting or fishing license for at least 5 of the last 7 years.  This regulation ensures that hunters are making decisions for other hunters and appointees would have a true understanding of Arizona’s rich hunting heritage. 

HB 2235 will be heard in committee on Monday, February 23 and it needs the NRA’s support to pass.  We have an opportunity to bolster hunting and we need your help. 

Please call the members of the House of Representatives Natural Resources and Rural Affairs Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to support HB 2235.
