Debate on Sportsmen' s Dollars and the Division of Wildlife Budget Scheduled
for This Week

Sportsmen must help protect Ohio’s wildlife funding from drastic cuts by
attending the House Budget Subcommittee hearing on Wednesday, March 12, 2003
in Columbus.

In an effort to balance the state budget in 2003, Governor Taft has proposed
to raid the coffers of the Ohio Division of Wildlife. The budget proposal
makes outright cuts to wildlife programs and diverts sportsmen’s dollars to
non-wildlife expenditures.

The budget proposal would rob Ohio’s state wildlife agency of an estimated
$5.5 million, a 12 percent budget cut. A slash this drastic would mean cuts
in agency personnel and conservation programs for game, non-game and
endangered species. Land acquisition, wildlife area improvements, wildlife
law enforcement, fishing access and fisheries management would also be
scaled back considerably.

The Ohio Division of Wildlife is nearly self-sufficient while providing
recreational opportunities for millions of citizens who do not hunt, fish or
trap. This will continue as long as funds meant for fish and wildlife are
used for that purpose.

Ohio sportsmen must attend the House Budget Subcommittee hearing on
Wednesday at 3:00 PM in House Hearing Room 115 at the Statehouse. Meet at
the Statehouse Rotunda at 2:15 PM and wear an orange hunting cap with
appropriate attire so that our group is recognized as individuals who oppose
cuts to fish and wildlife programs. Those who cannot attend should call
their representatives today. To find your legislator and to leave a
message, call (800) 282-0253 or use the Legislative Action Center on the
U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance website, www.ussportsmen.org
<http://www.ussportsmen.org>. Ask them to protect the Ohio Division of
Wildlife' s budget for the good of all Ohioans.

If you have any questions about attending the committee hearing, contact the
U.S. Sportsmen' s Alliance Ohio Committee at (614) 888-4868.
The U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance protects the rights of hunters, anglers and
trappers nationally in the courts, legislatures, at the ballot, in Congress
and through public education programs. For more information about the U.S.
