Typical evening at the capitol for the hardest working Senators in Montana…:
Senate President Scott Sales moved to amend the AIS bill with the addition of a $25 fee on bicyclists after they gave him a lot of grief over his
stance on a previous bill a few weeks ago.
The bill they voted against says this: “The citizens of Montana have the right to hunt, fish and trap wild fish and wildlife. Hunting, fishing, and trapping is the preferred manner of managing wild fish and wildlife and is subject to necessary and proper management and conservation statutes
enacted by the legislature and regulatory authority delegated by the
legislature to a designated public agency or commission. The right to
harvest wild fish and wildlife is a heritage that shall forever be
preserved to the citizens of Montana and does not create a right to
trespass on private property or diminution of other private rights.”
