  Section  1.  Resolved (if the Assembly concur), That article 20 of the

ANIMALS, BIRDS AND FISH ARE A VALUED PART OF OUR HERITAGE  AND  WILL  BE

STATE LAWS AND REGULATIONS THAT PROVIDE    PERSONS  WITH  THE  CONTINUED
OPPORTUNITY  TO  TAKE,  BY TRADITIONAL MEANS AND METHODS, SPECIES TRADI-

AND FISH, AND SHALL BE SUBJECT TO REASONABLE REGULATION AS PRESCRIBED BY
STATE STATUTE.
  S  2.  Resolved (if the Assembly concur), That the foregoing amendment
be referred to the first regular legislative session convening after the
next succeeding general election of members of  the  Assembly,  and,  in
conformity  with  section  1  of  article  19  of  the  constitution, be
published for 3 months previous to the time of such election.
