BILL NUMBER:S1104

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend
the environmental conservation law, in relation to providing for
lifetime sportsman license for honorably discharged, disabled veterans

PURPOSE:
To allow honorably discharged disabled veterans to purchase a
lifetime sportsman license at a reduced rate.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Sections one and two allow honorably discharged
veterans who are certified as having a forty-percent or greater
service-connected disability to purchase a lifetime sportsman license
for a twenty dollar fee, Section three provides the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
Current law allows disabled veterans to purchase a
sportsman license which is renewable each year for a five dollar fee.
Although the current law provides for a reduced rate, annual renewal
places an undue burden on those who have sacrificed so that we may
enjoy our safety and personal freedoms. In recognition of their
dedication and service to our country, this act would enable
honorably discharged disabled veterans to purchase a life-time
sportsman license for a twenty dollar fee. Disabled veterans deserve
to enjoy outdoor sporting hobbies such as hunting and fishing for
life at a reduced rate.
