Our recent activities in the Delaware Legislature

We submitted the following testimony into the public record at the Senate Natural Resources and Environmental Control Committee for HB 25 Gray Fox on April 20, 2015.
The Delaware Chapter of the Sierra Club opposes HB 25, the listing of the Gray Fox as a game animal in Delaware, the initiation of hunting regulations for the Gray Fox, and the sale and trade of Gray Fox hides in Delaware.
This bill places native wildlife needlessly at risk.
The Delaware Chapter of the Sierra Club oposes HB 19, which requires economic cost-benefit analysis of all agency regulations in Delaware, including health and environmental regulations.
The Sierra Club believes that progress must be measured by its long-term value to living systems and creatures rather than its short-term value to special interests or the economy.
There will be a Lobby Day & Rally for HB 105, which would allow for Same Day Voter Registration, at Legislative Hall on Tuesday June 17th.
Here at The Sierra Club we support making democracy fair and open to all.
