Iowa may overturn lead shot ban

Iowa Lawmakers Consider Overturning Lead Shot Ban -1

by Alex Robinson

If you're interested in an example of how politics and bureaucracy can screw with your hunting, just take a look at what's happening in Iowa.

The Iowa house recently voted 68-27 on a measure to overturn the rule banning use of lead shot for dove hunting. Initially, the Natural Resources Commission banned the use of lead shot for doves, but now some lawmakers are saying the commission overstepped it's bounds and doesn't have the authority to estate such a ban.

"This is about policy and the administration of rules," Rep. Clel Baudler, R-Greenfield told the Associated Press.

Now it's up to the senate to decide on the regulation. An oversight committee has put a hold on the rule, but if the Legislature doesn't overturn it before the end of this year's session, the rule will go into force
