    Default California Governor Vetoes Two Pro-Hunting Bills (one protects hunting dogs)

    California Governor Vetoes Pro-Hunting Bills
    10/8/08


    USSA along with its coalition partners, including the California Outdoor Heritage Alliance (COHA), are disappointed by the recent decision of California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s veto Assembly Bills 815 and 2132.

    AB 815 would have prevented a confusing mishmash of local regulations from stifling hunters, anglers, and trappers. AB 2132 would have prohibited the intentional removal of a dog’s collar, thus providing protection for sportsmen and their hunting dogs.

    In a veto message, Gov. Schwarzenegger indicated the bills were not a high enough priority and was sent to him too late as the result of other legislative issues.

    While it is recognized that many other pieces of legislation were vetoed for comparable reasons, there had been strong support for AB815 and AB2132. USSA urges that these bills be introduced in the next legislative session, passed, and, ultimately signed by the Governor. There is absolutely no reason not to provide peace of mind to California sportsmen.

    I saw on the boob tube that Mexifornia is in financial trouble and may be asking for a federal bailout. Stuff like the terminator just pulled is sufficient to make me think that we shouldn't waste taxpayers money bailing them out.

    Its not over yet, get your bills back on line in January. That's what our lobbyist plans to do. We had 2 urgency bills veto'ed and they had no fiscal requirements.

    Arnold vetoed 275 bills to make the statement to the legislature tha they need to concentrate on his state budget package next year, and get it passed 90 days earlier.
