The United States Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization on December 1, 2021.
Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch, who began the fight against the ruling in May 2021, is asking the court to recognize the right of the people to pass laws that protect life and women’s health and address legitimate interests of the State.
The same month that Fitch announced the fight an amicus brief signed by 207 members of the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate was filed to reconsider the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.

Saturday, September 25 marks our nation’s 49th Annual National Hunting and Fishing Day (NHFD). Signed as an official Presidential Proclamation by President Richard Nixon in 1972, NHFD is a great opportunity to come together and recognize the historical and ongoing contributions of the original conservationists – hunters and anglers. Likewise, NHFD is another chance to highlight the availability of safe outdoor recreation opportunities that many Americans have turned to during the COVID-19 pandemic. While some are eager to return to a sense of normalcy, NHFD is a reminder that these opportunities are still available for all of us to enjoy.
As a Co-Chair of the Mississippi Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus and as a member of the 49 state National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses, my fellow Caucus Co-Chairs and I are proud to take time to celebrate the time-honored traditions of hunting and angling. On this day, we ask our fellow Mississippians to join the 110 House & Senate Mississippi Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus members and our private partners in recognizing the tremendous dedication that our state’s sportsmen and women bring to the conservation of our natural resources.
