26-20. A sincere thanks to everyone who worked so hard on this one. Lots of work left, but it's nice to see that hard work can pay off. Check the roll tomorrow. If your Senator voted yes, be sure to send a thank you message. Great job everyone!
If there has to be a cap, 2048 is as good as any. Personally, I prefer no cap but I guess this will work. I'm disappointed but that's the beauty of the legislative process - everyone can voice their opinion. I'm sure the legislators are sick of reading emails regarding this issue.
Congratulations to all involved in the passage of this bill. As I have stated in the past, I am all for this cap as it will allow me and my son (he is almost two) the opportunity to come to No. Dak. for years to come and be guaranteed a quality hunt, even if it is only every other year.
This just in from my senator. Greater North Dakota Asc. and the outfitter lobbists are pounding the halls trying to get enough votes to overturn 2048. Get on the horn now to tell your senator to hang tight if they voted for the bill. Do it now.
Yes, the opponants (legislators and lobbying groups) of 2048 are right now working HUGE to try and turn a couple of votes and have this reconsidered. Under Senate rules, a motion to reconsider may be made within 24 hours of the vote. That is why it is vitally critical that EVERYONE follow up on this bill NOW. If your Senator voted YES, thank him/her and ask that he/she hold their vote in any reconsideration attempt. If your Senator voted NO, ask him/her to change their vote to YES if the motion is made. These contacts are as important as the contacts made prior to the vote. Remember, assume nothing. Rather, do all you can. 1-888-635-3447.
No use wasting all the effort I put in copy/pasting:
If you promise to send only very nice, thank-you, continue the support messages, here are the email address of the senators that supported 2048. This way just copy all the addresses into the BCC so they all get the email, but don't know you sent it to everyone else at the same time.
