Another update:

SB 364 will have a workshop session tomorrow (April 11, 2017) at 1:30 in the Senate Natural Resources Committee. You can watch the hearing live on the legislative website. Just go to the website, click on the bill number and follow the links). This hearing will not have any public input, unless specifically sought by the committee. For example, the committee may want to hear one more "my-dog-got-caught-in-a-trap-while-I-was-out-hiking" story. However, its valuable to watch the hearing to see how the vote comes out, and to see if there are any amendments added to the bill. Bills must be out of committee by this Friday. SB365 (bans trapping on public lands) does not appear to be scheduled for hearing so it will likely die.

If SB 364 does not pass tomorrow, then it is unlikely to get any further hearings and it will die. If it passes (in whatever form that may be with amendments), then it will go for a vote of the full Senate. If it passes there, it will go over to the Assembly and we will start the circus all over again.

OK folks . . . here's the most recent update.

SB365, the bill to ban trapping on public lands, won't get a hearing before tomorrow (the deadline) so its dead. One caveat is that the provision to prohibit trapping on public lands could be attached to any other bill that has made it out of a committee, so we have to be vigilant but right now, all is quiet on the western front.

SB364 was the other bill that reduced check times from 96 hours to 24 hours, imposed mandatory registration, required signs be placed where trapping might occur, allowed the public to tamper with or remove traps, etc. had its hearing today. At the hearing, the chair of the Committee, Senator Cancela(and swing vote) introduced an amendment which basically kept 96 hours, would require registration or labeling with a name and address, and a few other minor issues. This was historic because Senator Cancela, a freshman senator, went against her own party and other senior senators on the committee, to make the amendment. In other words, she made what I consider the right choice in the face of opposition from her own party. She's my hero for the day. That took guts.

So now SB364 goes to the Assembly and we start this process of hearings/testimony/lies by antis all over again. If this was a football game, its just half time, but at least we have a lead at the half.

I would sincerely appreciate it if any of you would email Senator Cancela and express your gratitude for her foresight, her willingness to learn about something she was previously uneducated about, and who had the courage to do the right thing in the face of incredibly strong pressure from within her own party. You can email Senator Cancela at this address:
