House Approves “Hunting Rights” Amendment

by Tony McVeigh on February 11, 2011

The Kentucky House closed out week three of the 2011 General Assembly by approving hunting and fishing rights legislation.

House Speaker Greg Stumbo relinquished his gavel so he could speak from the floor on the hunting rights bill. Stumbo says the constitutional amendment creates the right to hunt, fish and harvest non-threatened species using traditional methods.

“The real meat of this amendment to me is that it guarantees that the wildlife herds and our fishery population will be controlled by wildlife management,” he says.

The amendment, which ultimately will require approval by voters, passed 91-4. The House also approved legislation establishing a statewide system of teacher evaluation. Both measures now move to the Senate.
