Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: January 11, 2017 11:27 AM
From: Senator James R. Brewster
To: All Senate members
Subject: Sunday Hunting
In the near future, I will be reintroducing SB 1070 of the 2015-2016 session. This bill would authorize the Game Commission to allow for hunting on Sundays. Currently this is prohibited by statute, but my legislation will amend the law to allow for the Game Commission to issue regulations allowing for Sunday hunting.

Currently, this prohibition is the only game management decision that the legislature has put into statute. This bill would change that, and would leave all hunting management decisions to the Game commission.

This will provide an economic benefit to both the state and municipalities and hunters would be able to exercise their rights one more day per week.

Introduced as SB453
