Indiana: Constitutional Right to Hunt and Fish Scheduled for Monday Committee Hearing

Thursday, January 23, 2014

Originally scheduled for tomorrow, the Senate Agriculture and Natural Resources committee will now consider Senate Joint Resolution 9 on Monday, January 27, at 10:00 a.m. in Room 431 of the Indiana Statehouse.  Sponsored by state Senator Brent Steele (R-44), SJR 9 would guarantee Hoosiers the right to hunt, fish and harvest wildlife.  This legislation would ensure the preservation of Indiana's rich hunting heritage.

By declaring this right, Indiana would keep the existing fishing and hunting structure in place while protecting future generations of sportsmen from attacks initiated by well-funded anti-hunting extremists.  Specifically, SJR 9 would promote wildlife conservation and management.  In addition, it specifies that hunting, fishing and harvesting of wildlife shall be used as a preferred means of managing and controlling wildlife.  This proposed constitutional amendment would ensure that sportsmen will continue to be used as Indiana’s responsible game managers instead of the taxpayer-funded sharpshooters and unproven, expensive wildlife contraception schemes employed in other jurisdictions.

Please contact members of the Senate Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to SUPPORT your right to hunt and fish by voting “YES” on SJR 9.  Contact information for committee members is provided below.
