Changes proposed that would affect the Department of Conservation

Posted in: Legistlative Alerts, News- Apr 03, 2014 No Comments

We would like to encourage you to learn more about Senate Joint Resolution No. 42 and House Joint Resolution 57 and the effects this legislation would have on our Missouri Department of Conservation in its efforts to manage our fish, forests, and wildlife.

This legislation will establish a permanent Joint Committee on Administrative Rules and oversee all rules promulgated by state agencies, including the Missouri Conservation Commission. This represents a departure from how conservation has operated in Missouri since the 1930s and returns the state to a time when the General Assembly set hunting, fishing and other regulations.

Those who have opinions about this bill should contact their senators and representatives as soon as possible. Name and contact information for members of the General Assembly, as well as the full text of this bill, can be found at

Read about this issue in recent articles from the News Tribune and the Southeast Missourian.

Please contact your State Senator and Representative and voice your opinion.
