Senate Bill 1221, which would ban the use of hounds to hunt bears and bobcats in California, is scheduled to be heard by the Assembly Appropriations Committee on Aug. 8.
The controversial anti-hunting bill, which is being sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), passed the Assembly Water, Parks and Wildlife Committee by an 8-4 vote on July 2. The California Senate passed the measure in May.
SB 1221 continues to be opposed by NRA and other pro-hunting organizations. California hunters must halt HSUS’s advances in California before it’s too late by urging lawmakers to oppose SB 1221. Contact information for members of the Assembly Appropriations Committee can be found here.
