On Thursday, April 29, the State Senate unanimously passed Amendment “B” to Senate Bill 207. This bill would establish a credit to those who purchased a hunting or fishing license, permit or tag between October 1, 2009 and April 14, 2010, to be applied against the fee for any such license, permit or tag purchased by such person on or after October 1, 2010. SB 207 was designed to reduce the recent fee increases associated with hunting and fishing licenses, and passed by lawmakers last year. The amendment must now be voted on in the House of Representatives.
Please contact the members of the House of Representatives and respectfully ask that they pass SB 207 with Amendment “B” in order to help keep hunting accessible to all, regardless of their socio-economic status.
