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,”
