Thank you for your e-mail regarding SCR-11 and S-2750. SCR-11 would determine that the Fish and Game Council’s proposal to allow the use of enclosed foothold traps is inconsistent with the plain language and legislative intent of the 1984 law banning animal traps of the steel-jaw leghold type. And S-2750 would ban the manufacture, sale, possession, importation, transportation or use of certain traps.
Both SCR-11 and S-2750 were referred to the Senate Environment and Energy Committee. While I am not a member of this committee, I will certainly keep your comments in mind should they come before us on the Senate floor for a final vote. In the meantime, you may wish to write to the chair of this committee to voice your views. His address is as follows:
The Honorable Bob Smith
216 Stelton Road, Suite E-5
Piscataway, New Jersey 08854
