BILL NUMBER:S1115

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to exemptions
from requirements for hunting, big game, fishing and trapping licenses

PURPOSE:
To allow active service members stationed outside of New York
State to take fish as if they held a fishing license.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 11-0707 of the environmental
conservation law is amended by adding that a member of the United
States armed forces in active service, who is not stationed within
the state and has not been here longer than thirty days on leave or
furlough, may take fish as if he or she held a fishing license.

JUSTIFICATION:
Currently, an active service member of the United
States armed forces that is visiting family in New York State while
on leave or furlough cannot fish without first obtaining an out of
state fishing license. Active service members are limited in the time
they get to spend on leave, and even further limited by licensing
requirements required to enjoy activities while visiting family
within New York State. This bill will allow these active service
members, who are in the state for no longer than thirty days, to take
fish as if they held a fishing license.
Further, this bill provides our active service men and women with an
opportunity to enjoy fishing in times when they are not stationed
ready to defend our country.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S6520/A10812 of 2011-12; Referred to Environmental Conservation

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
