Right-to-hunt amendment passes House

HJR 2a, a proposed constitutional amendment adding a right to fish, hunt and trap to the Idaho Constitution, has passed the House on a 63-4 vote with no debate, and now moves to the Senate. The measure, which you can read here, would declare that the rights to “hunt, fish and trap, including by the use of traditional methods, are a valued part of the heritage of the State of Idaho and shall forever be preserved for the people.” To amend the Constitution, it would need to pass both houses by at least a two-thirds margin plus receive a majority vote of the people at the next general election.
