Natural resources issues to be highlighted at Capitol March 2

February 10, 2012 at 08:57 PM

Prairie State Outdoors

Those concerned about legislative issues relating to hunting and fishing, conservation and related funding are getting their own lobby day in Springfield.

Aaron Kuehl, conservation director for Illinois Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever has been working to organize an “Orange and Camo Rally” at the Capitol March 2.

The purpose of the rally is to demonstrate support for issues important to those who hunt, fish, participate in outdoors recreation or otherwise value conservation.

Schedule:

9 a.m. Meet at the State House Inn, located one block north of the Capitol on the corner of West Adams St. and First St at 9 a.m.

9:15 a.m. March one block to the Capitol.

9:30 - 11 a.m. Meet with individual legislators

11 a.m. Rally In the Rotunda with special guest speakers from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, Illinois Sportsmen’s Caucus and other Conservation Leaders.

Additional legislator visits can be arranged for after lunch.

Kuehl says legislators often are in their offices the morning before sessions begin. Appointments often are not granted. However, those with a personal relationship with their legislator may wish to call ahead.

Legislators can be requested from the floor and if no votes are pending often are willing to step out for a short 3 minute visit.

Dress is business casual. Suit and tie not required.

If you don’t dress appropriately for your audience and the place you are going you will look like a kook and not be taken seriously.  You would be doing more harm than good.  You wouldn’t wear a pair of bibs and hip boots to a funeral, would you?

Aaron Kuehl said Tuesday that business casual would be most appropriate for meeting with legislators, but participants can bring a camo or orange jacket and hat to put on for the rally.
