House committee votes to rein in DNR on lead ban


Today, the House Mining and Outdoor Recreation Policy approved HF3209, a bill to prevent the DNR from enacting new rules limiting the use of lead shot.

As GOCRA President Andrew Rothman testified at the hearing, the attempt to additional lead restrictions are part of a concerted effort by anti-Second Amendment forces to add additional barriers, cost, and hassle to buying, owning, selling and firing guns.

The bill, authored by Rep. Tom Hackbarth, with co-authors Josh Heintzeman and Debra Kiel, heads next to the Government Operations and Elections Policy committee.

Here’s the bill:

“The commissioner of natural resources shall not adopt rules further restricting the use of lead shot.”
