proposing an amendment to the constitution, in relation to the right  to
  hunt, trap and fish

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

                      RIGHT TO HUNT, TRAP AND FISH

  SECTION  1.    HUNTING,  TRAPPING,  AND FISHING AND THE TAKING OF WILD
ANIMALS, BIRDS AND FISH ARE A VALUED PART OF OUR HERITAGE  AND  WILL  BE
FOREVER  PRESERVED FOR THE PEOPLE. FISH AND WILDLIFE SHALL BE MANAGED BY
STATE LAWS AND REGULATIONS THAT PROVIDE    PERSONS  WITH  THE  CONTINUED

STATE STATUTE.
  §  2. Resolved (if the Senate 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.
