Don't get your hopes up on these going through. Over the last 4 years they have introduced two bills. The first time it did go through the House and was approved, then sat in the Senate until the 2011-2012 session expired. The next one was introduced extremely early in 2013 for the 2013-2014 session. I believe that one was tabled and never left the Game and Fisheries committee and expired.

Now in 2015-2016's session we have HB 349. Introduced early this year and is currently sitting on Game and Fisheries. If it follows the last two bill's progress, it will still be sitting there December 2016.

Personally, I think these politicians like to introduce bills to say they are doing something, but then they get ignored.

UPDATE

Hello All,

Currently the law change to make Hedgehogs legal in AZ is on hold. Here is the response I received from Fish and Game:

"A moratorium on rulemaking was put in place by Governor Ducey, which placed the Article 4 rulemaking on hold and required all agencies to request permission to pursue rulemaking.

The Department received permission to complete the Article 4 rulemaking on August 5th; the final rulemaking was submitted to the Governor’s Regulatory Review Council and the rulemaking should be on their October 6 agenda.

If all goes as anticipated, the rule change will become effective late this year."

Keep your fingers crossed that there is not another delay. We will be (hopefully) legal by the end of the year.

At this time the law has not yet been passed for Hedgehogs to be legal in AZ. The law was put on hold by the governor. Per Fish and Game in AZ:

"At this time, hedgehogs are listed as restricted live wildlife.

The Commission approved the Department’s rulemaking recommendations in December 2014, but they are not the final approval level.

A moratorium on rulemaking was put in place by Governor Ducey, which placed the Article 4 rulemaking on hold and required all agencies to request permission to pursue rulemaking.

The Department received permission to complete the Article 4 rulemaking on August 5th; the final rulemaking was submitted to the Governor’s Regulatory Review Council and the rulemaking should be on their October 6 agenda.

If all goes as anticipated, the rule change will become effective late this year."

As I get more information I will post it.

Default Hedgehogs legal in AZ Dec 5th 2015

The rule has passed, as of Dec 5th, 2015 the new law will go in effect!!!! This is per our Fish and Game Department: here it is -

You are receiving this email because you have asked to be apprised of any progress with the Article 4 rulemaking.

The Governor's Regulatory Review Council approved the Department's Notice of Final Rulemaking amending Article 4.

The Notice was filed with the Secretary of State's office today.

The new/amended rules will become effective December 5, 2015.

Thank you for your interest in the Article 4 rulemaking.

Sincerely,

Celeste
