House Bill 799 Concerning Aerial Shooting

Post  Koa Boa on Sun Feb 08, 2015 8:09 am

If anyone sees this before 10am tomorrow and cant make it to testify in person on Monday at the State Capitol.  Please Submit Testimony in Opposition to this bill.  Subsection (b) was added to HRS 263-10 to allow the state to engage in aerial shooting within the state. Due to the fact that state lands are public lands it is the states responsibility to find publicly acceptable management methods.  I will post the link below so anyone who wants can submit testimony.  I say even if you're late getting this send testimony anyway.  You can go to the link below and click on the submit testimony button.  If you are not currently registered you will have to register which is quick and easy.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF HAWAII:


    SECTION 1.  Section 263-10, Hawaii Revised Statutes, is amended to read as follows:
    "§263-10  Hunting from aircraft; penalty.  (a)  Any aeronaut or passenger who, while in flight in, across, or above the State, intentionally kills or attempts to kill any birds or animals shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and punished by a fine of not more than $1,000, or by imprisonment for not more than one year, or both.
    (b)  Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, state employees and independent contractors retained by the State may, while in flight in, across, or above the State, intentionally kill or attempt to kill any wildlife in furtherance of official state duties."
    SECTION 2.  New statutory material is underscored.
    SECTION 3.  This Act shall take effect upon its approval.


Mahalo for your support,
