Senate Bill 147, sponsored by Senator Dan Laughlin, would expand hunting opportunities for Pennsylvania hunters by providing for three additional days of hunting on Sundays. This legislation would allow hunters more time to take part in one of America’s oldest traditions. Further, hunters are responsible for millions of habitat restoration and conservation dollars through Pittman-Robertson taxes paid on firearms and other hunting equipment. Hunters should have access to hunting lands made possible by these funds.
Many hunters are prevented from introducing their children or friends to hunting because it is difficult to find the time and opportunities to hunt outside of the work or school week. Countless hunters stop hunting because of this lack of opportunity. Senate Bill 147 seeks to increase Pennsylvania hunters’ ability to enjoy our hunting heritage and will improve hunter recruitment and retention efforts.
Usually Senator Leach would vote against anything supporting guns. However, with the current pressure for the Senator to resign, perhaps he will consider supporting bills that might expand his voter base. It’s worth giving it a shot, please contact Senator Leach and urge him to SUPPORT Senate Bill 147.
