Summary as introduced:
Waterfowl sanctuaries and blinds. Repeals a number of local Acts of Assembly that provide for the establishment of waterfowl sanctuaries in various localities. Several of the local acts are duplicative of what appears in current state statutes. Among the provisions repealed by this bill are the prohibition on hunting from floating blinds in the Counties of Caroline, King George, Essex, Westmoreland and Richmond, and in several segments of the Rappahannock and Potomac Rivers. The bill also repeals a local Act of Assembly that establishes wildlife sanctuaries in areas of what is now Virginia Beach. This local act is no longer needed because Virginia Beach has adopted an ordinance that prevents hunting in these areas.
