Voters to Decide Hunting Constitution Change

KSAL StaffMarch 18, 2016

Kansas residents will decide this November whether to include the right to hunt, fish and trap wildlife in the state constitution.

Kansas would become one of about 20 states that make hunting, fishing and trapping a constitutional right if voters approve the proposed amendment in the Nov. 8 election. The Senate gave final approval to the House resolution in a 36-0 vote Thursday. It passed 117-7 in the House last month.

The measure would add a new section to the constitution’s Bill of Rights to preserve the outdoor activities as a preferred way to manage wildlife. Any future measures seeking to limit the activities would need to prove that a particular animal could become endangered.
