110th District State Representative Scott Dianda Discusses Wolf Hunt Legislation
110th District State Representative Scott Dianda (D-Calumet).
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – 110th District State Representative Scott Dianda of Calumet stopped in on The SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike today to discuss the passing of legislation allowing the state Natural Resources Commission to designate game species and set hunts for those species including wolves
The measure is on its way to Governor Rick Snyder’s desk after the State House of Representatives gave final approval to the measure yesterday. Rep. Dianda’s district covers the western portion of the U.P. which is identified as the area in the state currently most impacted by wolves.
Representative Dianda says he supported the measure based on constituent feedback and his own concern for public safety in his district. According to Dianda, a recent killing of a 150-pound Newfoundland dog by wolves and the sighting of wolves in residential areas of communities he represents lead him to vote “yes”.
Dianda did say that the 1 million dollar appropriation that was placed in the bill while it was in the Senate by it’s author, State Senator Tom Casperson of Escanaba, was an inappropriate bit of politics and he was glad to see that item remove from the bill before it moved out of the Senate.
