Important “No-Net-Loss” Hunting Bill Needs Your Help in Minnesota!

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Please Contact the Members of the House Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources Committee Immediately!

Tomorrow, February 17, at 8:15 a.m., the House Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources Committee will hear House File 498, sponsored by state Representative Tony Cornish (R-24B).  HF 498 would assure hunters in the state of Minnesota that their public hunting acreage will never decrease. 

HF 498, also known as “No-Net-Loss,” would require that the state maintain at least the level of available public hunting land that currently exists. It requires that additional lands be opened to hunting if land that is currently open to hunting is closed. The end result is to ensure public hunting opportunities now will not diminish.

This important pro-hunting legislation needs your support.  Please contact the members of the House Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to support this NRA-backed bill.
