Is this how the system works?Each bill will get a recommendation from the Nat. Res. Committee before it is voted on by the whole chamber.I went to the GNF site and it appears that the only bills that have recommendations are HB 1196,1311,and 1380.Does that mean they will be the only ones voted on this week since the committee doesn't meet until Thurs.?I don't know how accurrate the GNF site is though.

Dick...I'm not talking about the ones that will be heard this week,I'm talking about the ones that have recieved committee recomendations and will be voted on by the Senate or House.The bills you mention will be heard in committee this week.

I did some more searching on the United Sportsman Page.They say that HB 1223 has been amended to take out the opening of pheasant season the week after duck.But it still says the first 7 days would be res. only on GNF land.It recieved a 9-2 DP
HB 1380 was also amended with a 11-1 DP
1391 was amended with a 11-1 DP
These will probably be voted on this week.
Anyone have any more info?

HB 1223 will be somewhat confusing for many nonresidents to understand.

You can hunt private land. You can hunt federal WPA and federal grasslands, but can not ND GMA and ND PLOT land.

Are signs well marked enough for NR greenhorns to understand ?

Have no problem with the 7 day idea, in FACT it is too bad ND can not get authority to regulate upland bird hunting seasons on federal land too. That way all public land is residents only the first 7 days of the season.

When I used to hunt pheasants the opening week in ND, it was always on private land. Would only hunt public land when the opening week crowds were gone. Too many people crowding available space is a bigger concern for me - safety and quality dog work effected ... Even in mid to late season, pheasants on ND public land are never too hard to find with a good dog.

Sorry I'm late to sending this, but will elaborate a point by MRN. Ken, think some of the bills heard in comm. last week were "reported out" either in their original form or in an amended form. Some were tabled or assigned to subcomm. for further consideration and later recommendations back to the full Comm. When a bill does get finally resolved by a Comm., i.e. "reported out", it takes 3-4 days before it finds its way back into the system, and in the interim there's a "black hole" period where you can't access the latest bill version, the comm. recommendation or the floor schedule. Based upon the tracking systems I'm using, I have no official info yet for the bills that were reported out last week, but in the next day or so that info will become available, and word will get out on those bills in short order thereafter so we can participate in the floor vote process.

Dan...so the question I would have is that if I go to the legislative site and a bill no longer says what it did originally,does that mean it was amended into the present form?

Ken, would guess that's right. Give me the example you're looking at and I'll check in the "bill inquiry" area of the website and let you know for sure.

As I said above,1223 will be voted on soon as the recommendation has been made.The original bill had the season opening the week after waterfowl.The bill now does not have that in it.The only thing left is that GNF land is open to res. only the first week.I would guess we would ask our Reps to vote yes for this.

Ken, I haven't check these bills again tonight, but just because there are on tomorrow's calendar does not necessarily mean they'll be voted tomorrow. Could be, but not necessarily so. 1202 first showed up on the calendar last Tuesday, but didn't get voted until Thursday. But you are correct that once they show up on the calendar there may not be much time to deal with them.

Dan...yes it all depends on how much time it takes for debate and when they get started.I would think they will all be voted on sometime this week.

Rap...got to www.state.nd.us/lr
Then click on Bills and Resolutions...top left
Then on Bills and Resolutions again...left side
Then Daily Calendar...left side.
Then House or Senate.

My Rep. has told me the subcommittee is looking at amendments for the big one 1358...the Nelson Plan.I would guess they will talk about them when they meet this week.I would suggest we contact them and ask that the 10,000 numbers be based on the HPC and that there bw zones put in the bill.
