“Bills to outlaw competitive hunting competitions in New York State could become law this year if a handful of legislators in the Assembly and the Senate have their way. The bill, A-722, has been introduced in the Assembly’s Environmental Conservation Committee every year since 2003; however, with a now Democratic controlled Senate, this is the first time a similar bill was introduced in the Senate [S-4253]…”
Fudds ought to take this seriously. There have been bills introduced for years that would banning all hunting by redefining cruelty to animals. City legislators don’t care about hunting as there isn’t any in their urban districts. Having sat in lobbying meetings with Fudds represented, I know legislators have no respect for them as they never, ever back up their positions.
