Victory for Sportsmen! $260 Raid on Fish & Wildlife HALTED!

February 17th, 2011
In response to overwhelming pressure from the sportsmen community, Representative Becker announced today his plans to withdraw HB 1150, a bill that would have raided $50 million from hunting and fishing license fees and resulted in a net loss of over $260 million for fish and wildlife conservation and management in Colorado. We would like to congratulate the Department of Natural Resources and Rep. Becker for seeking a bipartisan, collaborative solution that respects the needs of Colorado’s agricultural communities and the fish and wildlife that make our state great. CTU and other members of the sportsmen’s community extend our deepest thanks and appreciation to Rep. Becker for responding to the voices and concerns of sportsmen. Please call Representative Becker to thank him at 1-800-811-7647 (outside Denver) or 303-866-2906 (within the Denver-metro area). To read more about HB 1150, click here.
