Senate Approves New Guidelines For NRB

1/18/12 – The Wisconsin Senate voted 23-to-9 Tuesday in favor of new qualifications to serve on the state Natural Resources Board. The bill is designed to have more sporting enthusiasts represented on the D-N-R’s policy-setting panel. Under the measure, three of the seven board members must have owned hunting, fishing, or trapping licenses for seven-of-the-10 years before they’re appointed. And one board member must come from the agricultural sector. The Assembly approved the same changes last October, so the bill now goes to Governor Scott Walker.
