FRANKFORT, Kentucky: The proposed ballot measure that would allow voters to decide whether to protect the right of residents to hunt and fish in the state has been passed to the Kentucky State Senate. On March 1, 2011, the Senate State and Local Government Committee voted to approve the measure with a unanimous vote, placing the measure for a full chamber debate and vote in the Senate.[1][2]

Previously, on February 8, 2011, the Elections, Constitutional Amendments and Intergovernmental Affairs Committee voted to approve the measure, passing the amendment to the Kentucky House of Representatives for full debate and vote. The measure was then approved by the House.

If the Senate approves of the measure, the proposal would be placed on the November 2012 ballot for voters to decide.
