New Jersey. Bill S2649. Senator Bob Smith. Assembly Agricultural Committee.Urgent Action Needed. A Message from the APLNJ. November 2011.
Dear Members, Supporters and Friends, After meeting with key legislators in the Assembly Environment and Solid Waste Committee, we effectively halted movement on S2649, a ghastly and deadly bill for deer. . . In a underhanded maneuver, Senator Bob Smith (D-17), the sponsor, moved the bill to the Assembly Agriculture Committee, where he knows there is support for his pro-hunt agenda. In behalf of the deer, who are victimized and maligned, we urge you to take action. (see TAKE 5 MINUTES AND DO THREE WONDERFUL THINGS FOR DEER! below). Please save these and other deer from becoming dead bodies in the backs of trucks, heads in buckets, and heads on the walls of hunters. TAKE 5 MINUTES AND DO THREE WONDERFUL THINGS FOR DEER! Please start calling on Monday. Talking points are available here: http://aplnj.org/Legislation.php To read a report on S2649, please go here: http://aplnj.org/assets/pdf/S2649Report.pdf 1. EVERYONE: Call the Speaker of the Assembly: Sheila Oliver: (973) 395-1166 .
