BILL NUMBER:S193

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend
the environmental conservation law, in relation to providing for
lifetime sportsman license for honorably discharged, disabled veterans

PURPOSE:
To allow honorably discharged disabled veterans to purchase a lifetime
sportsman license at a reduced rate.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section one allows honorably discharged veterans who are certified as
having a forty-percent or greater service-connected disability to
purchase a lifetime sportsman license for a twenty dollar fee.
Section two provides the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
Current law allows disabled veterans to purchase a sportsman license
which is renewable each year for a five dollar fee. Although the
current law provides for a reduced rate, annual renewal places an
undue burden on those who have sacrificed so that we may enjoy our
safety and personal freedoms. In recognition of their dedication and
service to our country, this act would enable honorably discharged
disabled veterans to purchase a life-time sportsman license for a
twenty dollar fee. Disabled veterans deserve to enjoy outdoor
sporting hobbies such as hunting and fishing for life at a reduced
rate.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S.3210/ A.7682 of 2009-2010; Referred to Senate Environmental
Conservation Committee
S.7334/A.10929 of 2007-2008; Referred to Senate Environmental
Conservation Committee

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
