BILL NUMBER:S1112

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to fees charged
for certain hunting, fishing and trapping licenses

PURPOSE:
This legislation would amend the current fee structure to allow
certified DEC Sportsman Education Instructors to receive a free
Resident Super-Sportsman License.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill would amend the Environmental Conservation Law to entitle
DEC instructors to receive a free Resident Super-Sportsman License,
in years which they record 20 or more hours of service, and only if
they have volunteered for the past three consecutive years.

JUSTIFICATION:
Currently, these instructors have to go through a
certification process and volunteer countless hours of their time and
receive no compensation for their hard work. These instructors have a
passion for their sport and have graciously volunteered their time to
help prevent fatalities and reduce injuries associated with hunting.
Often times, instructors are required to supply their own props or
materials and all instructors donate their time and energy, all
without compensation. Giving free Resident Super-Sportsman licenses
to these instructors is the least we can do to thank them for their
continued service to the state of New York.
Instructors are required to complete education time and activity
records for each course they teach, so such records could easily be
used to determine an instructor's eligibility for the free license.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S6038/A9252 of 2011-12; Referred to Environmental Conservation

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
