Jim Justice signed SB 451 on Thursday, allowing Sunday hunting on public lands in West V'trginia. The bill was passed overwhelmingly during the re- cently completed legislative session Last year, Gov. Justice signed a bill permitting Sunday hunt- ing on private land with written permission of the landowner This new bill will open more than 1.5 million acres of public land to Sunday hunting, provide several additional hunting days each year and make West Virginia more attractive to out- of-state hunters. The bill will take effect in early June and af- fect the 2018 hunting and trapping seasons thereafter "'People drive tight through West Virginia to Ohio or wher- ever it may be to be able to hunt on Sunday," Gov. Justice said. "We lose those dollars because they want to be able to hont an entire weekend. This will provide additional hunting recreation for our visitors and residents and result in a major economic impact for our small rural businesses Today is tru- ly historical." A study by the National Shooting Sports Foundation proj- ects Sunday hunting adds $155 million to the state's economy each year. Gov. Justice spoke about the bill during a ceremo- nial signing on Thursday in the Governor's Reception Room before a crowd of officials from the Division of Natural Re- sources, state legislators and Sunday hunting supporters. -- West Virginia Department of Commerce JEFFERSON HIGH's ;immons Simmons vaulted 10-6 as she earned first in the pole vault event at the Paul Arbogast Memorial meet on Saturday at Spring Mills.
