Our good buddy Homer e-mailed me this and I thought I would post it for our readers. If you live in Washington or hunt in Washington you might want to give your two cents worth.
Everyone interested in metal detecting,
We have a bill in the senate that is intended to open all developed areas in Washington State Parks, excluding those that are designated archaeological sites.
What we need to do is write the senators on the committee and ask for their support of the bill, the more letters of support that we get the better our chances for the bill to get out of committee.
All I wrote is . Short and to the point..................................
Please support SB 5506, the bill to keep state park lands open to metal detecting.
encourage others to write also, it only takes a few minutes.
