California: Governor Schwarzenegger Signs Important Pro-Hunting Bill

Monday, October 4, 2010

On Wednesday, September 29, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) signed Senate Bill 1179 into law.

SB1179, introduced by State Senator Dennis Hollingsworth (R-36), will require the Department of Fish and Game to establish two free hunting days per year where unlicensed hunters can hunt so long as they are accompanied by someone who is licensed.  This legislation promises to help recruit the next generation of hunters by allowing novices to try their hand at hunting without being required to purchase a license.

Thank you to all of the NRA members who answered the call in support of SB1179.  Without you, this victory would not have been possible.
