HB 235 - CORNER CROSSING -Support

Defeated in house judiciary committee. -2013

This bill would have decriminalized "corner jumping" and was strongly supported by PLWA . It would have op opened thousands of acres of public land. Sadly, the bill was defeated in the House Judiciary Jan 30 on a straight party line vote with all the R's voting against it. ( Including co- sponsor Krayton Kerns of Laurel .)
