Ok, so I voted today, and saw the small proposed amendment to the Tennessee Constitution regarding Hunting and Fishing. I have seen a couple of articles in our local (Chattanooga) paper, and on several on-line news sites about this. However, in reading it I still could not reasonably figure out WHY this needs to be added, and I am a high school US History/Government teacher!! I get what it means, I just don't know why we need to add this to our state Constitution. I figured someone on here would know. So I pose this question to you all.....why is this needed? If this is voted down, does that change anything for Hunters/Fishers in TN? And, what is the reason this was proposed in the first place? Thanks in advance for your replies....
