Senate Sends Hunting and Fishing Protections to Vote of the People

The State Senate passed Senate Joint Resolution 38 on Monday by a vote of 46-0, sending to a vote of the people Co-President Pro Tem Glenn Coffee's proposal to provide constitutional protections for the right of Oklahomans to hunt and fish.

SJR 38 adds a new section to the State Constitution giving all Oklahomans the right to hunt, trap, fish, and take game and fish. Under this legislation, state laws to prohibit anyone from engaging in such activities are not allowed.

“In recognizing the rich hunting and fishing heritage of our state, I authored SJR 38 to ensure the protection of hunters and fishers whose rights are under attack nationwide. This legislation ensures the protection of Oklahoma hunters and fishers and gives the people of Oklahoma a chance to decide if the right to hunt and fish will be added to the protections of our constitution,” Coffee said.
