The Associated Press reports that Sen. Martin Heinrich of New Mexico and Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska have co-sponsored a bill "dramatically broaden access to federal land for hunting, fishing and outdoor recreation."
The copyright article goes on to say
"The bill would be a boon for hunters and anglers, opening federal lands and requiring the federal government to set aside money to make land more accessible. The only exception would be national parks and wildlife refuges. Improving access would also be required, including making paths more accessible and adding signs.
"Regulations on hunters and anglers would be eased. The bill would allow hunters to carry their bows and crossbows across National Park Service land, and hunters with legal firearms would be able to take them on land that's managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for water projects."
The article reports broad bi-partisan support with few critics. That's a good thing. You should definitely read the whole thing, especially the bits about lead shot, bullets, and lead fishing weights.
One curious point: I found this article in the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, but not in the Anchorage paper. I guess it's too pro-Constitution and pro-people for the liberals who publish it.
