Please contact your NYS Senators and strongly urge them to sign on as co-sponsors and pass S.6644.
FIND YOUR LEGISLATORS:
THIS BILL IS A DIRECT HIT ON THE DEC's ability to issue kill permits to the USDA and others; Sen. George Latimer is on the same Environmental Committee as Tony Avella, Jose Serrano and other legislators willing to stand up for wildlife. Bill S6644 will set an amazing precedent for stopping future slaughters in general.
Thank you as always!
