Right to Hunt and Fish Amendment Heads to Governor’s Desk in the Volunteer State!

Friday, March 19, 2010

Senate Joint Resolution 30 passed the State House on Thursday, March 18 by a vote of 90-1.  SJR30 now heads to Governor Phil Bredesen’s (D) desk for consideration.  

This will be one of the final steps in the legislative process to get the Right to Hunt and Fish Amendment on the ballot this November.  SJR30 would propose an amendment to the Tennessee Constitution recognizing citizens’ right to hunt and fish.  It provides truly meaningful protections against the anti-hunting activists who seek to ban all hunting in America.  The ultimate adoption of this constitutional amendment would preserve Tennessee’s rich hunting and fishing traditions for generations to come. 

Please contact Governor Bredesen and urge him to sign SJR30.  He can be reach by phone at (615) 741-2001 or by email at Phil.Bredesen@tn.gov.
