Pennsylvania: Youth Hunter Fix Passes Senate Appropriations Committee

Today, House Bill 1452 (Gillespie-R47) passed out of the Senate Appropriations Committee, moving one step closer to becoming law.  House Bill 1452 is legislation that creates a discounted general hunting license for Hunter Trapper Education (HTE) instructors.  HB 1452 was amended earlier this year to fix a loophole in the current mentor hunting program which prohibited the Pennsylvania Game Commission from implementing mentor hunting programs for youth between the ages of 12-17.  This technical fix will correct the current problem and reinstate the original legislative intent of Pennsylvania’s mentored hunting program.  Final approval of the measure could come as early as this week in the Senate.
