The Nevada Board of Wildlife Commissioners held a Special Telephonic Commission Meeting on Monday, April 6 at 9 a.m. to discuss wildlife legislation pending at the Nevada State Legislature.

Wildlife Commissioner David McNinch requested the special meeting at a recent Wildlife Commission meeting in Reno, stating he felt it was an important duty of the commission to review pending wildlife legislation. A number of commissioners stated that they felt that taking a formal position on legislation was an important and essential duty of the commission, and the commission unanimously approved the special meeting.

An estimated 16 wildlife bills are pending at the Nevada State Legislature. The Board may take action to support or oppose individual items of legislation.

The Special Commission meeting agenda, and language of the bill draft requests is posted on the Nevada Department of Wildlife website here.
