House moves to repeal the Pittman-Robertson act.

Recommended Posts

Pittman-Robertson is a 10-11% tax on the manufacture of hunting & fishing equipment, and  it does allot of good. 53 Republican Legislators, included Jason Smith have signed on to sponsor it the repeal. That money does allot of good in states that are not blessed/cursed with a 1/8 cent conservation sales tax and an unaccountable Cadillac Conservation Department, and I think its a bad move. You may disagree. Harass your legislator about it. Or don't.

Well, if the reason for the move to repeal it is because they can't show that the money is going where it is supposed to go...... then the house repubs are on the ball.  👍

A politician on the ball? Never happened. Now if they aren’t getting their cut they will be furious.

They money is going towards some level of conservation. It makes a big difference in states where it is not funded. In their donors pockets is we’re most would send it. The Jeff City folks dem & rep both would like to control that 1/8th cent MDC money. I’ve been to the state house many times and heard it from both parties elected officials.

This is a terrible move for conservation.

IF.  But.  That's not the reason.  Trust me on this one.

So, the ones in favor of PR can prove that the money has always been going where it is supposed to go, and has always been doing what it was designed to do...... but they want to take it away regardless ?  

What is the reason they are basing their decision on ?

Maybe they will send out a bonus check to all that are too lazy to work. By the way how many accidents have been caused by people on MaryJane .You never ever hear about that stat.

Way less than are on prescription anti-depressants, and hormone pills.
