Tomorrow, House Bill 322 will be heard in the Senate Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Committee. Sponsored by state Representative Mark Tuggle (R-81), HB 322 would guarantee the right to hunt, fish and harvest wildlife in Alabama.
By declaring and enshrining this state constitutional right, Alabama 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, HB 322 would promote wildlife conservation and management. In addition, it specifies that hunting, fishing and harvesting of wildlife shall be used as the preferred means of managing and controlling wildlife. This proposed amendment to the Alabama Constitution would ensure that sportsmen will continue to be used as Alabama’s responsible game managers instead of the taxpayer-funded sharpshooters and unproven, expensive wildlife contraception schemes employed in other jurisdictions.
Using the contact information provided below, please call AND e-mail members of the Senate Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to vote “YES” on HB 322 to ensure the right to hunt and fish for future generations.
