Pro-Hunting Reform Advancing in Minnesota Legislature

Friday, March 13, 2009

On Thursday, March 12, House File 128 was referred to the House Public Safety Policy and Oversight Committee after it successfully passed the House Environment and Policy Oversight Committee.  Introduced by State Representatives David Dill (DFL-6A) and Tony Cornish (R-26B), HF 128 would allow hunters to have uncased and unloaded long guns and a bow with an unnocked arrow in a motor vehicle.  Under current Minnesota law, a hunter leaving his/her deer stand cannot legally accept a ride in a motor vehicle, no matter what the circumstances may be, without his/her gun or bow in a case. 

On Thursday March 5, HF 128’s companion bill, Senate File 1225, was introduced by State Senators Satveer Chaudhary (DFL-50), Tom Saxhaug (DFL-3), and Gen Olson (R-33).  SF 1225 is currently pending action in the Senate Environment and Natural Resources Committee. 

Please contact the members of the House Public Safety and Oversight Committee and urge them to support HF 128.  Also, please contact the members of the Senate Environment and Natural Resources Committee and voice your support for SF 1225.  Contact information can be found below.
