Postby EC NEWELLMAN » Sun Oct 08, 2017 2:10 pm

Thanks to an industry person who has done extensive work here on an issue dear to my own heart!
=====================


ATTENTION!


All fishermen / hunters / business owners /

lovers of constitutional rights in New York State!

IMPORTANT !!!



A Bill has been introduced in the NY State Legislature that promises to eliminate UNCONSTITUTIONAL warrantless searches and property seizures by NYSDEC Enforcement Personnel.

PLEASE FAX, EMAIL, AND CALL YOUR ASSEMBLY MEMBER AND GOV. CUOMO’S OFFICE AND DEMAND PASSAGE OF THIS BILL INTO LAW.


Also - PLEASE FORWARD THIS EMAIL AND ATTACHMENT TO ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS IN NY STATE – UPSTATE HUNTERS, FISHERMEN AND BUSINESS OWNERS HAVE IN INTEREST IN THIS ALSO! POST ON SOCIAL MEDIA, MAKE AS MANY PEOPLE AWARE OF THIS AS POSSIBLE !! WE MUST FLOOD THESE OFFICES WITH OUR DEMAND FOR CONSTITUTIONAL LAWS IN N.Y. STATE!

The current session bill numbers are:

NYS Senate – S2993 (Lavalle)
NYS Assembly – A2352 (Thiele)


Go to this link to read the full text, history and progress of this bill in the ASSEMBLY - Bill A2352:


Go to this link to read the full text, history and progress of this bill in the SENATE - Bill S2993:



The bill corrects language that has been historically misinterpreted by NYSDEC.


They claim that the current environmental law EXEMPTS them from 4th and 5th Amendment limitations on law enforcement, and gives them authority to search and seize private property without a warrant or probable cause.

Of course this is impossible, as no state law or law enforcement agency can supersede the Bill of Rights – nonetheless NYS DEC ECOs have been illegally violating our individual rights for years with impunity.


THIS IS OUR LONG-AWAITED OPPORTUNITY TO STOP THIS LAWLESS ACTIVITY BY OUR STATE GOVERNMENT!!

The bill has already passed in the state Senate – it will be harder to get passed in the liberal Democrat-dominated Assembly, and Gov. Cuomo will also likely resist this effort under pressure from NYSDEC officials. This means we ALL must do EVERYTHING WE CAN to push this through the Assembly and the Governor’s office!

You can find contact info for your Assembly member here:

Here is Gov. Cuomo’s contact info:

Tel:(518)474-8390

email: gov.cuomo@chamber.state.ny.us

I have attached a sample letter to make this as easy as possible – there is no excuse not to do this!

FAX or Regular Mail is best method – it creates a piece of paper that must be dealt with! Do it more than once!

As Americans we each have a personal responsibility to keep our government honest!

I have done as much as I can – it is up to each one of us to step up and demand that our state government abide by the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Thank you, and thanks to EC Newell Man for his help and information on this bill.

Thank you!

Dear [Assemblyman/Governor]:

I am writing in strong support of Bill No. S2993/A2352, “AN ACT to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to the powers and duties of enforcement officers.”

This bill will insert language into the Environmental Conservation Law that will bring it into harmony with the 4th and 5th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The law as currently written has been historically misinterpreted by NYSDEC to illegally exempt their enforcement personnel from constitutional search and seizure limitations. This unconstitutional interpretation has resulted in countless civil rights violations over the years, in the form of illegal warrantless searches and seizures of private property by NYSDEC enforcement officers.

As an elected official, you swore an oath to “support the constitution of the United States…” As your constituent, I expect and demand that you honor your oath of office by supporting this bill and voting for its passage into law.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter – I will be monitoring your voting activity on this bill.

Sincerely,

[Your signature]
