Deer Baiting Bill in Georgia Appears Dead

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

House Bill 1285, a bill that would allow hunting and shooting over baited deer in Georgia appears as though it will never make it past the Rules Committee! Committee Chair Earl Erhart, Marietta (R), took a show of hands and it appeared split right down the middle. Not wanting to tie up the Rules Committee with extensive debate, Erhart removed the bill with only 5 days remaining to get bills on the schedule.

This doesn’t necessarily kill the bill but it’s chances of survival are slim.
