Hunters, fishermen get seats on National Resources Board

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Among several bills signed by the governor Friday was legislation which strengthens the presence of hunting and fishing interests on the Natural Resources Board.

Starting in 2017, one member of that board must have an agricultural background and three should hold a hunting, fishing or trapping license in at least 7 of the last 10 years before being nominated.

Opponents of the law called it a power grab for hunters and fishermen. They say the board is too heavily-weighted against those who advocate for recreational activities like bird watching and hiking.
