Illinois: Lead Ammunition Ban to Be Heard in Committee Tomorrow

Illinois: Lead Ammunition Ban to Be Heard in Committee Tomorrow

Tomorrow, the Senate Environment and Conservation Committee will be hearing Senate Bill 1985. SB 1985 would ban the use of traditional lead ammunition while hunting in State parks or protected natural areas.  Please contact members of the Senate Environment and Conservation Committee and strongly urge them to oppose SB 1985.  Also please fill out and submit a witness slip in order to be placed on the record in opposition to SB 1985.  Witness slips for this bill can be filled out here.

 

As we have seen with attempts to ban the use of lead ammunition in other states, arguments in favor of these bans are based on faulty science made by anti-hunting advocates.  It is important to fully understand the facts concerning traditional hunting ammunition so Illinoisans are not misled into adopting a ban that could negatively impact the rich hunting heritage of Illinois.  There has been no sound scientific evidence stating that traditional ammunition is having a population-level impact on any species in Illinois.  To ensure proper conservation of species, wildlife must be managed with a fact-based approach.

Please contact members of the Senate Environment and Conservation Committee and strongly urge them to oppose SB 1985.  Please also fill out a witness slip in opposition to this anti-hunting legislation.
