Governor Tomblin Signs SB237, Creating Captive Cervid Farming Act

Special to HNN From a Gov. Tomblin Press Statement
Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin today signed Senate Bill 237, creating Captive Cervid Farming Act:

“I have great respect for the significant economic impact hunting has in West Virginia, with more than 350,000 hunters helping to create more than 5,000 jobs and generate nearly $270 million for the state’s economy. I also respect the overwhelming bipartisan support this bill received in both the Senate and House of Delegates, passing with wide margins in both chambers.

I am confident we can protect our diverse wildlife and maintain our state’s strong hunting tradition while expanding responsible deer farming operations across the state, creating new jobs and new opportunities for our residents and small businesses.”
