Default Can I shoot a Bald eagle?

YEP! That will be perfectly legal. And, every other bird that you see, if this passes in the Senate and is signed into law.

In response to a wildlife issue that I sent to my congressman, I got this response, in part:

"Thank you for contacting me about protecting migratory birds. I share your views about protecting wildlife and have long supported wildlife conservation efforts.

Unfortunately, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a spending bill that included an amendment introduced by Congressman Jeff Duncan (R-South Carolina) to block enforcement of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, one of our nation's oldest wildlife protection laws.
As a member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, I will continue to oppose such attempts to unravel wildlife protections in the Senate."

You can probably find other links to this, but I like this one:

I find this typical of the majority of that side of the aisle. The environment takes a back seat to money. None will ever get my vote! If this paragraph is a violation of the term agreements here, so be it. Delete my post. I just don't think that you will sleep well tonight.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I had no idea.

Time to spread the word, in my opinion.
