House Bill No. 1788 is a step toward reinstating the ability of hobbyists to hunt and capture amphibians and reptiles on roads and rights-of-way, which was allowed for years before being prohibited by House Bill No. 12 in the 80th Legislative Session.
While I support allowing this hobby to resume, I do not support requiring a special stamp for those involved in the practice, because a hunting license is sufficient. Therefore, I am not lending my signature to the bill.
