1 Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the Commonwealth 2 of Pennsylvania, to provide for the right to hunt and fish. 3 The General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania 4 hereby resolves as follows: 5 Section 1. The following amendment to the Constitution of 6 Pennsylvania is proposed in accordance with Article XI: 7 That Article I be amended by adding a section to read: 8 § 29.

However, this right shall not 13 be construed to confer a right to a license to hunt or fish 14 issued by the Commonwealth when the privilege to hold such a 15 license has been revoked or suspended pursuant to an act of the


     1  General Assembly.
     2     Section 2.  (a)  Upon the first passage by the General
     3  Assembly of this proposed constitutional amendment, the
     4  Secretary of the Commonwealth shall proceed immediately to
     5  comply with the advertising requirements of section 1 of Article
     6  XI of the Constitution of Pennsylvania and shall transmit the
     7  required advertisements to two newspapers in every county in
     8  which such newspapers are published in sufficient time after
     9  passage of this proposed constitutional amendment.
    10     (b)  Upon the second passage by the General Assembly of this
    11  proposed constitutional amendment, the Secretary of the
    12  Commonwealth shall proceed immediately to comply with the
    13  advertising requirements of section 1 of Article XI of the
    14  Constitution of Pennsylvania and shall transmit the required
    15  advertisements to two newspapers in every county in which such
    16  newspapers are published in sufficient time after passage of
    17  this proposed constitutional amendment. The Secretary of the
    18  Commonwealth shall submit this proposed constitutional amendment
    19  to the qualified electors of this Commonwealth at the first
    20  primary, general or municipal election occurring at least three
    21  months after the proposed constitutional amendment is passed by
    22  the General Assembly which meets the requirements of and is in
    23  conformance with section 1 of Article XI of the Constitution of
    24  Pennsylvania.
