NEWTOWN, Conn --( On Wednesday Aug 27th 2014, the Michigan House of Representatives took the final step to pass a citizen-initiated law called the Scientific Fish & Wildlife Conservation Act (SFWCA) by a 65-43 vote.

The House action was preceded by State Senate approval on Aug. 13, meaning the SFWCA will now become law.

This victory for all sportsmen in the state proves Michigan’s commitment to allowing professionals to focus on wildlife management.

The SFWCA will ensure that decisions affecting the taking of fish and game are made using principles of sound scientific fish and wildlife management.

The measure provides for free hunting, fishing and trapping licenses for active members of the military, and ensures appropriations for fisheries management activities necessary for rapid response, prevention, control and/or elimination of aquatic invasive species within Michigan.

NSSF thanks everyone for their efforts in securing this victory.
