Today, Wednesday, May 3, the Assembly Appropriations Committee passed Assembly Bill 521 with amendments. AB 521 sponsored by Assembly Member Jim Frazier (D-11), with the new amendments, would significantly reduce California’s high-priced resident elk tags from nearly $450 to $100 and would additionally create an allocation of youth elk tags for $20 per tag. Currently, youth hunters pay the same price for elk tags as adults. We will keep you updated as to when AB 521 will be eligible for its final vote before the full Assembly. Please contact your Assembly Member by using the TAKE ACTION button below and urge them to SUPPORT AB 521.
AB 424 has still not been considered by the Assembly and remains eligible for a vote at any time. AB 424 sponsored by Kevin McCarty (D-7), would remove the authority of a school district superintendent, his or her designee, or equivalent school authority to provide written permission for a person to possess a firearm within a school zone. Please continue to contact your Assembly Member by using the TAKE ACTION button below and urge them to OPPOSE AB 424.
