As the Senate prepares to vote on Joan Hurlock’s confirmation to the Fish & Game Commission, in his closing debate, Sen. Bert Brackett, R-Rogerson said, “I would submit, as far as qualifications, it’s not more qualified, it’s not most qualified – it’s qualified.” Responding to Sen. Jeff Siddoway, R-Terreton, Brackett said, “The good senator from 35, he is passionate, but that is not listed in the qualifications.” Said Brackett, “We need more recruits, we need more youth getting involved. This nominee, Joan Hurlock, is committed to that. I think it would be a very welcome addition to the commission to have that commitment. For the survival of hunting as we know it, we’re going to have to get more youth involved sooner.”
