Amendment Protecting Hunting And Fishing Clears Committee

A Kentucky House committee has approved a constitutional amendment assuring Kentuckians’ right to hunt and fish.  The measure is House Bill One and Speaker Greg Stumbo is a primary sponsor.“Our wildlife management folks have done a really good job controlling the herds, managing the herds, reintroducing new species like the elks and the turkeys and things like that.  And those add to the overall hunting experience and the draw that we have to bring people here.  And so it’s an economic development tool and it just needs to be protected.  I don’t see anything wrong with it," he says.A constitutional amendment automatically restoring voting rights to felons who have served their time also won House committee approval.  Both measures now move to the House floor.
