Bill Text

PAG LIN
  1  1    Section 1.  Section 481A.38, subsection 1, Code 1999, is
  1  2 amended by adding the following new unnumbered paragraph:
  1  3    NEW UNNUMBERED PARAGRAPH.  The commission shall authorize
  1  4 the use of steel shot size no. 2 or 3 as a substitute for lead
  1  5 shot size no. 4.  
  1  6                           EXPLANATION
  1  7    This bill directs the natural resource commission of the
  1  8 department of natural resources to allow the use of steel shot
  1  9 size no. 2 or 3 as a substitute for lead shot size no. 4.
  1 10 Currently, the shot sizes are restricted to no. 4, 5, 6, 7.5,
  1 11 or 8 by administrative rule without specifying the material
  1 12 composition of the shot.  A no. 2 steel shot and a no. 4 lead
  1 13 shot have an essentially equivalent effective range.  The
  1 14 effective range of a no. 3 steel shot is less than a no. 4
  1 15 lead shot.  Lead shot is not used for taking migratory birds
  1 16 because of environmental concerns.
