U.S. House approves bill to allow killing sea lions
« on: June 26, 2018, 09:30:22 PM »
"Under the bill, designated officials would be able to remove some California and Stellar sea lions from specific areas where they are posing the most harm to endangered native fish runs."

I'm a WCO, where can I get 'designated'  :chuckle: There ought to be some good contracts for some really big, stout cage traps pretty soon too.

In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

If I am not mistaken the bill needs to pass in the Senate and Trump needs to sign it.
It wouldn’t hurt to call our two commie senators and ask them to vote to approve the senate bill when it comes up.
Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray if you weren’t sure who I am referring to.

Despite what you'd think, Cantwell is pushing the bill to the Senate.

"Republican Sen. Jim Risch is sponsoring a bill that would make it easier for federal fishery managers to kill sea lions that could prey on salmon and steelhead. Democratic Sen. Maria Cantwell of Washington has also signed on in support of the proposal."

Does this bill need Senate approval as well?

That cage trap would have to be a monster.  I am completing a large guillotine trap right now that feels like a beast to handle but it is nothing compared to what a sea lion would require  :yike:

Yes. Maria Cantwell introduced a identical bill in the senate. The bill has been referred to the Senate committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. It is unknown when it could get a vote.

:yeah:
I wonder if it would help if we found out who is on the committee and encouraged them to bring it to the floor for a vote?

I wonder if they'd make it a special permit draw or something....I recall my ancestors killing them for sustenance so I need 1 to continue to exercise my rights. :chuckle:
