  THE MIGRATORY BIRD CONSERVATION ACT [1] (16 U.S.C. 715-715r)

Alabama.--The Code of Alabama, 1940, title 8, section 110. Arkansas.--Arkansas Statutes, 1947, section 10-1111. California.--Deering's California Codes, Fish and Game Code division

  Connecticut.--The General Statutes of Connecticut, Revision of 1949, title LVII, chapter 360, section 7172.

  [1] Section 8 of the Migratory Bird Conservation Act (16 U.S.C. 715g) expressly provides that the jurisdiction of the State over persons upon migratory-bird reservations shall not be affected or changed; and section 12 of the Weeks Forestry Act, as amended (16 U.S.C. 480), states that the State in which any national forest is situated shall not lose its jurisdiction over such national forest, not the inhabitants thereof their rights and privileges as citizens. In view of these provisions of Federal law the United States does not exercise legislative jurisdiction over the properties to which they pertain and holds them in proprietorial interest status only, notwithstanding State consent to Federal acquisition of such properties. The Committee feels that the mentioned State consent statutes are of sufficient importance and are sufficiently related to the subject of legislative jurisdiction that references to them should be included in this Appendix.
