BILL NUMBER:S6729 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to requiring the department of environmental conservation to issue documentation of hunter safety course completion PURPOSE: The purpose of this bill is to allow sportsmen and women who have previously completed the approved NYS DEC hunter safety course the ability to get a replacement certificate if it has been lost or destroyed without having to retake the hunter safety course. In order to get a hunting license in New York, an individual must product a valid hunter safety course certificate or a previous hunting license. The NYS DEC does not maintain records prior to 1980 which would provide a record of the individual's satisfactorily completing hunter safety course prior to 1980 should one be lost or destroyed. This bill would allow the NYS DEC to issue a replacement Hunter Safety Course Certificate based upon the individual possessing a current or expired NYS DEC issued hunting license. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Amends Section 11-0713 of the environmental conservation law by adding a new subdivision 7.
