Note from Corky Pugh of Hunters United Now and Tomorrow (H.U.N.T) Alabama. H.U.N.T. is an advocacy group that lobbies in the Legislature for sound public policy on hunting issues.
Late yesterday afternoon, the February bill in the House came up for a vote. It was soundly voted down, failing to even get past the stage of a BIR (Budget Isolation Resolution) vote, which is required procedurally for a bill to be brought to the body for a vote. The champions of the common man in this matter were Speaker Mike Hubbard, Reps. Chad Fincher, Randy Davis, Thomas Jackson, and others. These statesmen clearly understand that the Legislature does not want to wade off into the quicksand of tinkering with seasons and limits.
Sometimes the process actually works. Don’t underestimate your impact in coming to Montgomery to testify. The Senate bill is still viable, so……..
Ever vigilant. Corky
Remember, if you live in Tom Whatley’s district, remember to vote against him in the next election cycle
