House Bill 228 is one of two predator wildlife management bill which is winding its way through the legislature. It passed out of committee this week and awaits scheduling on the house floor.

House Bill 228 sponsored by Republican Casey Snider from Paradise takes an existing rule and codifies it into law allowing livestock growers and designees to kill predator species on public land. Snider did not respond to KPCW in time for this story.
