Right to Hunt and Fish Amendment Committee hearings...

On February 11, NRA-backed House Bill 1, the Right to Hunt and Fish Amendment, passed in the state House by a 91 to 4 vote. This bill is expected to be heard in the Senate State and Local Government Committee as early as tomorrow, February 16.

Sponsored by state Representative Leslie Combs (D-94) and House Speaker Greg Stumbo (D-95), HB 1 proposes an amendment to the Kentucky Constitution recognizing citizens’ right to hunt and fish. It would provide truly meaningful protections against the animal rights activists who seek to ban all hunting in America. The ultimate adoption of this constitutional amendment would preserve Kentucky’s rich hunting and fishing traditions for future generations.

Please contact members of the Senate State and Local Government Committee TODAY and respectfully ask them to pass HB 1 without amendments. Contact information for this committee can be found here.
