Stop Governor Pataki from giving away free hunting licenses - New York

A bill dubbed the "Patriot Plan" is being promoted by Governor George Pataki and the Assembly's Republicans that is meant to protect National Guard or armed forces Reservists from discrimination in the housing and job markets. As part of this plan, free hunting licenses will be included as part of the benefit package.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

Contact Sheldon Silver, the Speaker of the New York Assembly, and Joseph L. Bruno, the Senate Majority Leader and ask that they do all they can to see that the provision of the Patriot Plan that gives service members free hunting and fishing licenses is not included in the final version of the bill.

POINTS TO MAKE

While helping our men and women in uniform is a noble cause, further enabling them to destroy our wildlife is not.

According to the July 2003 issue of Field and Stream magazine, the number of hunters in the United States has fallen over the last five years from 27 million to 13 million. Hunters now make up only 4.6% of the population, compared to the 31% of the public who are wildlife watchers those who appreciate our native wild animals without killing them.
