Hunting Plan Wins Support

(AP) -- Senator Kent Conrad says he's encouraged by the support for a proposal to pay farmers and ranchers who allow the public on their land.

The bill, called the ``Open Fields'' program, was authored by Conrad and Kansas Republican Senator Pat Roberts.

There are several co-sponsors of the bill. Similar legislation has been introduced in the U-S House, by Nebraska Republican Tom Osborne and North Dakota Democrat Earl Pomeroy.

If it becomes law, the plan would allocate 50 million dollars a year for states to pay landowners who allow others on their land for hunting, birding or other recreation.

States would write their own rules for how to administer the funds.

Conrad says more than two dozen fishing, hunting, conservation and farm groups have gotten behind the bill.
