BILL NUMBER:S3421

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to youth
pheasant hunting days on Long Island; and providing for the repeal of
certain provisions upon the expiration thereof

PURPOSE:
To authorize the DEC to make youth-only pheasant hunting opportunities
available on Long Island.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 authorizes the DEC to fix by regulation youth-only pheasant
hunting opportunities on Long Island, provided that such opportunity
precedes the open season.

Section 2 makes technical changes to inconsistent language in
Environmental Conservation Law section 11-0903.

Section 3 contains the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
Youth only pheasant hunts are already offered in the Northeastern and
Western portions of the State. Environmental Conservation Law
currently authorizes the DEC to set youth-only hunts for pheasants by
regulation everywhere in the State but on Long Island.

Long Island sportspersons have expressed an interest in improving and
expanding youth only hunting opportunities. Special youth-only hunts,
occurring before the open season, give youth a unique opportunity to
participate in the sport free of other hunters and with greatly
improved changes of obtaining their quarry.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
De minimis increase in sales of Junior Hunting Licenses.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect on the sixtieth day after it shall have
become law, provided that paragraph c-1 of section 11-0903 of the
Environmental Conservation Law as added by section one of this act
shall expire and be deemed repealed December 31, 2013.
