#1 Example: Comment on the Nov 18th WDFW Spring Bear meeting - where a game of semantics was played on the word "recreational", a level of science requested that could end all hunting in Washington State or the fact that an unnamed, outside influencer reached Commissioner Rowland during the meeting (she stated this) and this resulted in influenced and changed policy(see rules below). This was not a meeting open to public comment!
Ordinances, rules, resolutions, regulations, etc., adopted at public meetings—Notice—Secret voting prohibited.
#2 Example: Commissioner Rowland has submitted a blue sheet calling on the moratorium of beaver trapping. Is there a conservation need for this moratorium? NO. Beaver Trapping is a valuable wildlife management tool.
