California Department of Fish and Wildlife Public Workshop on Implementation of Lead Ammunition Ban to be Held on Tuesday

Saturday, August 2, 2014

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) will hold a public workshop on Tuesday, August 5, to discuss implementation of the newly expanded ban on the use of lead ammunition for hunting throughout California.  This CDFW public workshop will be held from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at the CDFW South Coast Regional Office at 3883 Ruffin Road in San Diego. Following the CDFW presentation, hunters and other interested parties will be able to make public comment.

 

Last year, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law Assembly Bill 711, which requires the California Fish & Game Commission (CFGC) to adopt regulations to ban the use of lead ammunition for all hunting throughout the state no later than July 1, 2015, and to fully implement and enforce such ban no later than July 1, 2019.

 

At the August 5 workshop, CDFW representatives will explain its proposed plan to implement the lead ammo ban.  The CDFW’s PowerPoint presentation is available on the CDFW website.  Although the NRA will continue efforts to repeal this deeply flawed lead ammo ban and while many hunters, sportsmen and other outdoor enthusiasts have been somewhat disappointed by the CDFW’s prior workshops, we believe that we cannot simply avoid the process and ignore these public proceedings. Therefore, we urge our members to closely follow these events and attend when possible.  The participation of hunters in this process is necessary to closely monitor the CDFW’s and the CFGC’s actions to implement AB 711.  Accordingly, individuals and organizations should try to attend, or at least submit their concerns to the contacts referenced below. 

Governor Brown directed the CDFW and the CFGC to work with all stakeholders and interested parties to adopt regulations that make implementation of AB 711 as minimally disruptive to the hunting community as possible.  But without question, implementing the lead ammo ban will have an extremely negative impact on hunting.

 

The CDFW has been holding AB 711 workshops throughout the state, including previous workshops in Ventura in April and in Eureka in June.  After the Redding workshop, the CDFW plans to hold additional workshops later this year in Sacramento, San Diego, Fresno and Riverside/San Bernardino.

 

The CDFW anticipates presenting its recommendations to the CFGC at its September meeting in Sacramento.  Comments submitted to the CDFW may shape its final recommendation to the CFGC regarding implementation of the lead ammo ban.  To that end, comments should be emailed to wildlifemgmt@wildlife.ca.gov (please use “Nonlead implementation” in the subject line), and correspondence can be mailed to:
