Contact your state representatives ASAP

a recently proposed bill SB 5127 proposes to shrink the size of the Fish and Wildlife Commission down to 5 and bestow the power of appointing the Head of Fish and Wildlife to the governor. The Fish and Wildlife Commission is nonpartisan and its appointees reflect the views of numerous stakeholder groups in our state. It provides important continuity and oversight of the state fish and wildlife department and if marginalized the management of our fish and wildlife resources may be more subject to the whims of the political leadership in Olympia. Contact your representative today and tell them to vote no on SB 5127.
