The legislature has scheduled public hearings on two of my bills on Tuesday, January 31.
LD 98, my turkey bill, will be heard by the Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Committee at 1 pm in Room 206 of the Cross Building (next to the Capitol).
LD 128, my bill to require permission to pick wild crops on private land, will be heard by the Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry Committee, also at 1 pm on January 31, in Room 214 of the Cross Building. That bill is listed third on the afternoon’s public hearing schedule, so we’ll be able to get to both hearings.
LD 128 is sponsored by Senator Tom Saviello. I have spent much of my life advocating for more respect for private landowners, and better relationships between those of us who recreate on private land and the owners of that land. We’ve made a lot of progress, but still have constant complaints and problems.
