BILL NUMBER:S6858

TITLE OF BILL:
An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to
requiring publication of laws relating to the control of invasive
species

PURPOSE:
The purpose of this bill is to provide sportspersons with information on
legislation intended to reduce the effects of invasive species and to
prevent further invasions.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
This bill would require the Department of Environmental Conservation
(DEC) to include in their existing publications information on legis-
lation affecting the eradication, suppression, reduction or management
of invasive species.

JUSTIFICATION:
Invasive species pose significant threats to ecosystems like wetlands,
water bodies, forests, meadows and grasslands. These threats not only
affect the environment, but can also affect human health and well-being.
Therefore, helping prevent the introduction, spread and growth of inva-
sive species is essential for the protection of New York's environment.

DEC already produces a syllabus that is available to persons who hold
hunting, trapping and/or fishing licenses. By including information on
legislation relating to invasive species, sportspersons would be able to
help reduce the effects of invasive species by having an increased
awareness of how to control invasive species that would ensure the
continued enjoyment of the great outdoors for future generations.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect in 60 days.
