State Rep. Ann Bollin today voted to eliminate a requirement recently put in place by the unelected Natural Resources Commission (NRC) that, if allowed to stand, could result in criminal penalties for deer hunters who fail to comply.

You don’t have internet service to hop online and notify the NRC as soon as you shoot a deer – and you certainly shouldn’t face jail time as a result.”
House Bill 6354 now advances to the Michigan Senate for further consideration.
