Keep America Fishing says this:
On Wednesday, March 28, the New Hampshire Senate is expected to vote on legislation to expand current restrictions on the use of lead sinkers and jigs. If this unjustified bill passes the Senate, it may then move to the House of Representatives for further consideration.
It is critical that anglers take action now to ensure that this lead ban legislation is not adopted.
In January, the New Hampshire State Senate introduced legislation (SB 224) to expand current restrictions on the use of lead sinkers and jigs in state waters. A recent amendment, supported by loon preservation advocates and lake owners, further expands the proposed ban by prohibiting the use of any lead jig measuring 2.5 inches or less.
Current regulations banning the use of lead jigs measuring one inch or less are already onerous enough and have impacted the ability of New Hampshire’s anglers to enjoy the sport. As this bill moves closer to passage, it is more important than ever that New Hampshire’s state policy makers hear from you.
