"Texas House Gives Final OK to "Pork Chopper" Bill"

"The Texas House gave a final OK [May 17] to the 'pork chopper' bill and sent it off to the governor's office. The bill would allow licensed hunters to hire helicopters and contract with landowners to shoot feral hogs and coyotes on their property from the sky. The Senate approved the measure last week but changed the wording of the bill slightly to give the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department more authority to regulate who can pay for helicopter hunts."
