Senator Joshua Sanchez Introduces Legislation to Support Youth Game and Fish Programs
SANTA FE – In early February, ten-year-old Braden McIntosh visited the State Capitol with a simple request—to make youth game and fish programs easier to support. Senator Joshua Sanchez (R-Veguita) and Senator Cliff Pirtle (R-Roswell) were happy to honor his request and together introduced Senate Bill 392. Senate Bill 392 would provide an option to round up your purchase of fishing and hunting licenses, game tags, and other game and fish purchases as a donation to youth game and fish programming.
Senator Sanchez issued the following statement regarding Senate Bill 392:
“I want to give all the credit for this proposal to Braden McIntosh who had the courage to approach us with an idea he was passionate about. I know the value of these programs and if we can share that experience with more young people, it will spread a deeper appreciation for our beautiful state. Youth like Braden are the future and I am excited for those who will be served by Braden's great idea.”
Senate Bill 392 was referred to the Senate Conservation Committee and the Senate Indian, Rural and Cultural Affairs Committee.
