KTA Lobby Day!
by Joe Neville, KTA Executive Director
Please join KTA staff and board members as we descend upon the Pennsylvania capitol and lobby our legislators to oppose lifting the ban on Sunday hunting.
KTA plans on having a large presence at the capitol on June 6 to convince our elected officials that most Pennsylvanians do not support the recent efforts of the National Rifle Association and Pennsylvania Game Commission to lift the ban on Sunday hunting and take away our 1 day of the week when we can hike in safety and quiet.
Staff will guide you with a planning meeting describing how to meet with legislators. We’ll also guide you around the capitol, provide handouts and talking points, and schedule all appointments.
When: Tuesday, June 6, 2017, at 8:30 AM.
Where: Pennsylvania state capitol (meet in the cafeteria).
Sign-Up and Additional Information: E-mail your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 717-766-9690.

Is there a bill in progress to lift or keep the ban?
Stephen - there are currently two Sunday hunting bills pending in the General Assembly. SB 453 (Brewster) and HB 71 (Godshall).

I am an avid hunter and hiker. There is absolutely no place for this lowly politicking, institutionalizing a polarized us-versus-them mentality over the great wilds of Pennsylvania. There is ample space for all of us to safely share, 365 days a year.
