Win! Fish Hatcheries Not Cut!



The CT Senate & House of Representatives passed the budget bill (S.B. 1601) and eliminated the Hatcheries portion thereby restoring funding for the Hatcheries.

We can now do a victory lap, but this issue will undoubtedly be revived again in the 2016 Regular Session, beginning in February, and should it fail again might be repeated until those who write the budget conduct research, recognize the concerns of the citizenry, the negative fiscal and jobs impact, and the significant reduction in public recreation (quality of life).

Thanks to everyone who contacted their legislators. Speaking to legislators on Tuesday, many had received your communications and some met or talked personally with sportsmen. However some were totally unaware of the issue -  we MUST do better! Sportsmen's Caucus members carried the ball. Thank those legislators you communicated with.
