Pennsylvania Hunting Alert: House Overwhelmingly Passes Pro-Hunting Legislation

Today, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives took a historic step toward strengthening hunting rights in the Keystone State. Thanks to your calls and emails of support, the House voted 144 to 54 to pass important pro-hunting legislation, Senate Bill 147.  The bill now heads back to the Senate where it will receive a concurrence vote in mid-November.

Senate Bill 147, sponsored by Senator Dan Laughlin, would expand opportunities for Pennsylvania hunters by providing for three additional days of hunting on Sundays during the season.  Hunters are responsible for millions of acres of habitat restoration and conservation dollars through Pittman-Robertson taxes paid on firearms and other hunting equipment and should have access to the public lands made possible by these funds. 

Many hunters are prevented from introducing their children or friends to hunting because it is difficult to find time and opportunities outside of the work or school week.  Countless hunters stop hunting because of this reality in our hectic lives.  Senate Bill 147 seeks to increase Pennsylvania hunters’ ability to enjoy our hunting heritage and will improve hunter recruitment and retention efforts.

Your NRA-ILA will continue to keep you updated when this legislation is scheduled for a vote.
