INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. –Hoosier voters have approved a constitutional amendment protecting the right to hunt and fish in Indiana, according Associated Press.
The amendment will prohibit laws from being passed that would restrict hunting and fishing in the future. It will also make hunting the state’s preferred method of wildlife conservation.
Proponents of the amendment say if hunting were restricted, then the state would miss out on money from licenses and permits.
Opponents of the amendment questioned whether Hoosiers’ ability to hunt and fish is in jeopardy to begin with. Some fear the amendment could cause a court to strike down a future policy protecting endangered species.
