HCR2037 fails, would harm wildlife management

PHOENIX -- The overstepping HCR2037 was defeated yesterday in the State House.

HCR2037 constitutional rights; game and fish (JP Weiers, Adams, Barnes, et al), a measure that would have referred to the ballot a constitutional amendment that would have a significant and negative impact on wildlife and wildlife management in Arizona, was defeated in the House Committee of the Whole yesterday 27-28-5.

Thank you to legislators who voted no on this. They include Representatives Ableser, Bradley, Brown, Cajero Bedford, Chad Campbell, Cloves Campbell, Chabin, DeSimone, Farley, Gallardo, Garcia, Hershberger, Lopes, Lopez, Lujan, McGuire, Meza, Miranda, Pancrazi, Prezelski, Reagan, Rios, Schapira, Sinema, Thrasher, Tom, Ulmer, and Young Wright.

The Arizona Game & Fish Dept. is also against HCR2037.

It is likely to come back as a strike everything amendment, so stay tuned on that.

My talk today at the DoD environmental conference went well. Thanks to Junior Kearns of the White Sands base NM for the invite to PEER.
