On Friday, August 30, the California Senate Appropriations Committee voted 5-2 to pass legislation that would require the use of non-lead ammunition for the taking of all wildlife, including game mammals and birds, with a firearm. If passed by the full Senate and signed by California Governor Jerry Brown, Assembly Bill 711 would effectively expand the state’s existing lead ammunition ban from solely the California condor range to the entire state.

During the Senate Appropriations hearing, the Committee adopted an amendment proposed by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) that will delay implementation of the lead ban until July 1, 2019. This amendment will provide the CDFW Director with the authority to postpone the ban outside the condor range for certain calibers in which non-lead alternatives are unavailable due to federal prohibitions related to armor-piercing ammunition. During Friday’s Appropriations Committee hearing, California Outdoor Sporting Caucus member Senator Ted Gaines voted against the bill along with Senator Mimi Walters.
