 Mississippi Action Alert

3/31/06

CASH ACTION ALERT!

Urge Governor Barbour to VETO SB 929, the bill to exempt hunting accidents from the state Public Records laws.

SB 929 would prevent Mississippians from being informed about hunting accidents involving injuries or death. The Associated Press reports that Barbara Powell, a lobbyist for the Mississippi Center for Freedom of Information and Common Cause, said the February 2006 hunting accident in which Vice President Dick Cheney shot his friend is an example of the type of incident reports the bill would keep from public view in Mississippi.

Critics of SB 929 say it restricts the public's right to know about hunting accidents.

Please contact Governor Haley Barbour now and urge him to veto this bill.

The Honorable Haley Barbour, Governor
P.O. Box 139
Jackson, MS 39205
