Yesterday, the Senate Agriculture, Livestock and Water Committee passed Hunter Education Legislation, House Bill 22-1168, by a 5 to 2 vote. The measure now heads to the Senate Floor for a full vote, and your Senator needs to hear from you!
House Bill 22-1168 allows local education providers, upon entering into an agreement with an individual or entity that offers hunter education courses certified by the division of parks and wildlife (division), to provide a hunter education course (course) to all seventh graders. The course must satisfy the requirements of a hunter education course certified by the division; except that hands-on activities are not required. The course must be taught by a division-certified instructor. A parent or legal guardian must provide permission for a student to participate in any hands-on activities that are offered as part of the course.
Again, please contact your State Senator and ask them to SUPPORT Hunter Education Legislation, House Bill 22-1168.
