  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative  intent.    The legislature hereby finds that
according to a "2001 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and  Wildlife-
Associated Recreation," recreational anglers and hunters spent more than
$3.5 billion in pursuit of their pastimes in New York in 2001.  The 1996
survey  found that expenditures include monies spent for equipment, bait
and tackle, hotels and motels, restaurants, lodges  and  camps,  grocery
and  hardware  stores,  and guide services.   The survey also found that
these expenditures and their associated economic impact supported 43,000
jobs and generated $100 million in state sales tax and  $32  million  in
state  income  tax  in  New York state in 1996.   Nationally, the survey
estimated that hunting and fishing supported 1.9 million jobs and gener-
ated $2.9 billion in state sales tax and $772 million  in  state  income
tax.    The  legislature  finds  and declares that hunting, fishing, and
wildlife-associated recreation support jobs, generate sales  and  income
taxes,  and  are  an  integral component of the tourism industry and the
overall economy in New York state.  Efforts are underway in  each  state
to  promote  tourism, including hunting, recreational fishing, and wild-
life-associated recreation in the name of  economic  development.    The
legislature also finds that the department of environmental conservation
must  rely  on a study every five years by the United States Departments
of Interior and Commerce to determine the number of people who hunt  and
fish  and  expenditures  relating to their recreation.   Therefore, this
