Comments
Rules exist to keep bad actors at bay. The elimination of rules only emboldens those violating the already lax rules. This bill flies in the face of the "rule of law."

Comments
The DNR is responsible for hosting stakeholder deliberation, tribal engagement, and public input processes before creating rules around hunting. This arbitrary rule creates a scenario that disregards that process and undermines the DNR authority.

Comments
Too broad. Most rules were vetted through stakeholders and then passed by legislators. No guidelines on which rules would be removed.
