Michigan Pro-Sportsman Bill Receives Strong Support in House Committee


A Michigan bill would enable state wildlife professionals to make decisions about what species may be hunted.

The bill, HB 5478, passed the House Committee on Conservation and Outdoor Recreation by a vote of eight to one and has been referred to the House floor with a recommendation to pass. It specifies that the Michigan Natural Resources Commission must hold two public hearings before adding or deleting a species from the list of game animals and that the legislature retains the authority to amend any such act by statute. Currently, only the legislature may designate a species as game and is only required to hold one public hearing when amending the list.

The WLFA supports the management of wildlife by professional managers and this includes the designation of game. House Bill 5478 will give the Natural Resources Commission the exclusive authority to regulate the taking of game in Michigan using principles of scientific management.

Take Action! Michigan sportsmen are urged to contact their state representatives to show them that you overwhelmingly support HB 5478.  Explain that designating game is a pivotal part of the process of scientific game management and it should be the responsibility of professional
wildlife managers. To find your representatives, call (517) 373-0135 or visit the Legislative Action Center on the WLFA home page,
www.wlfa.org.

The Wildlife Legislative Fund of America protects the rights of hunters, anglers and trappers across the nation in the courts, legislatures, at the ballot, in Congress and through public education programs. For more information about WLFA, call (614) 888-4868 or visit our web site,
