TITLE: CONCERNING THE ESTABLISHMENT OF SPECIAL HUNTING LICENSING PROGRAMS FOR YOUTH AND FOR THE MOBILITY-IMPAIRED.
Summary of Assessment
This reengrossed bill authorizes the Wildlife Commission to establish a special licensing program for hunters who are eligible for a youth license, and to adopt rules that establish a preference system for persons licensed as youth hunters.
The bill also authorizes the commission to establish a special licensing program for mobility-impaired hunters. The commission is authorized to adopt rules to define “mobility impaired”, and to establish a hunting license preference for the mobility-impaired. The bill will become effective upon the signature of the Governor.
The provisions of this bill will not affect state, or local government, revenue or expenditures. Therefore, the bill is assessed as having no fiscal impact.
The Division of Wildlife currently administers a special licensing program for hunters who are eligible for a youth license and reserves the use of certain wildlife properties for youth mentor hunting. The division also has established a special licensing program for mobility-impaired hunters and reserves certain wildlife properties for hunting by the mobility-impaired. The provisions of this bill conform law to the division’s current practices.
