The bill to create the amendment is Senate Joint Resolution 3, introduced by senators Steve Faris, Bob Johnson, Gilbert Baker, Bobby Glover, Kim Hendren and Ed Wilkinson. Unlike a bill of similar intent introduced two years ago, this version does not contravene the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission's constitutional authority to manage the state's game and fish resources. This one is very simple and direct. It guarantees a public right to hunt and fish, and it specifies hunting, fishing and trapping as the preferred methods of managing game and fish.
