WHAT IT SAYS Senate Joint Resolution 9, passed by the Indiana General Assembly, calls for a constitutional amendment to protect hunting and fishing rights. The resolution language, in its exact form, must be passed again by a separately elected General Assembly, before it goes to a public vote. The resolution reads: "The right to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife is a valued part of our heritage and shall be forever preserved for the public good. The people have a right, which includes the right to use traditional methods to hunt, fish and harvest wildlife, subject only to laws prescribed by the General Assembly and rules prescribed by virtue of the authority of the General Assembly, to promote wildlife conservation and management and preserve the future of hunting and fishing. Hunting and fishing shall be the preferred means of managing and controlling wildlife. This section shall not be construed to limit the application of any provision of law relating to trespass or property rights."
