Currently awaiting consideration in the State Senate is an important pro-hunting reform bill, Senate Bill 147. Please contact your state Senator and strongly urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 147.
Senate Bill 147, sponsored by Senator Dan Laughlin, would expand hunting opportunities for Pennsylvania hunters. This legislation would allow hunters more time to take part in one of America’s oldest traditions. Further, hunters pump millions of dollars into habitat restoration and conservation through Pittman-Robertson funds, and deserve to be able to use them to their fullest extent.
Many hunters are prevented from introducing their children or friends to hunting because it is difficult to find the time and opportunities to hunt outside of the work or school week. Countless hunters stop hunting because of this lack of opportunity, both in time and accessible land. Senate Bill 147 seeks to increase Pennsylvania hunters’ ability to enjoy our hunting heritage, and will invigorate essential hunter recruitment and retention efforts.
Again, please contact your state Senator and urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 147.
