This is a copy of the letter Governor Steve Bullock sent to the Secretary of State on March 23rd, 2015 explaining his reasons why he chose not to sign or veto HB212.
Dear Secretary McCulloch:
Today, I allowed House Bill 212, sponsored by Representative Kirk Wagoner, to become law without my signature. House Bill 212 amends the Title 87 definitions of fishing, hunting and trapping to include the harvesting of fish and game. "Harvest" is a term which appears in Section 7 of Article IX of the Montana Constitution.
