Has anyone been listening to the ND Farm Bureau's commercials that they are playing across the state. I just listened to one supporting "proposed legislation" to take away the powers of the Director and make the advisory board a commission. The commercial stated that the department was accountable to no one but the governor and they want this changed. I think they should have came right out and said that "we would like the game and fish department to be accountable to the ND Farm Bureau" There are game and fish commissions in a lot of states, and they typically leave a lot to be desired. I don't think the ND Farm Bureau would have the best interests of the wildlife in mind, and think this would be a bad idea. Right now, a person with a biology background is put in the Directors position. You wouldn't have that with a commission and special interest groups who should have nothing to do with wildlife could potentially railroad in their handpicked yes men.
