BILL NUMBER:S3539

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend chapter 483
of the laws of 2010, amending the environmental
conservation law relating to hunting by crossbow,
in relation to making
technical corrections thereto

PURPOSE:
To change the title of Chap. 483 of the laws of 2010 to the
"Robert R. Ripberger crossbow legalization act".

JUSTIFICATION:
Robert R. Ripberger, who passed away on May 27th, 2010,
was an avid central New York sportsman, conservationist, and lifelong
volunteer. In 2007, Bob was honored with the united State's EPA's
Environmental Quality Award and in November 2009, the Carpenter's
Brook Fish Hatchery established a fund to honor his work. Amongst his
many contributions to his community, as well as sporting and civic
organizations, Bob fought diligently for the legalization of
crossbows in New York state. Unfortunately, Bob passed away before he
could see his dream realized. Thus, it is only fitting that we honor
his legacy by re-naming the crossbow legalization legislation after
him.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
No fiscal implications.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
On the same date and in the same manner as chapter 483 of the
laws of 2010.
