Earlier today, Governor Tom Corbett signed legislation into law removing an antiquated law which required hunters and trappers to display their license on an outer garment. With the enactment of House Bill 735, hunters and trappers will no longer be required to display their license beginning on February 13. Since this legislation will not take effect for sixty days, it is important that hunters and trappers continue to respect the current law and continue to wear their license until then.
HB 735, sponsored by state Representative Keith Gillespie (R-York), was unanimously approved by the state House on June 15, and was approved by a 46 to 3 vote in the state Senate.
Thank you to all those who contacted their state legislators concerning this issue during this process.
