Coffee Hunting and Fishing Resolution Receives Bipartisan Vote

The State Senate unanimously passed Senate Joint Resolution 38 by Co-President Pro Tem Glenn Coffee that acknowledges the inherent right of Oklahoma citizens to hunt and fish.

The resolution will add a new section to the State Constitution that gives all Oklahomans the right to hunt, trap, fish, and take game and fish. The legislation would not allow state laws to prohibit anyone from engaging in such activities.

“Our state has a rich hunting and fishing heritage that deserves protection. Sadly, the rights of hunters and fishers are under attack across the country. For example, in some states, animal rights activists are trying to halt fishing by seeking legislation declaring that fish feel pain. To protect Oklahomans from this kind of nonsense in the future, SJR 38 gives the people of Oklahoma a chance to vote to add the right to hunt and fish to the protections of our constitution,” Coffee said.
