BILL NUMBER:S91

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.

JUSTIFICATION:
The primary reason for the bill is to assist those sportsmen and women
who have been hunting accident-free since their original date of
hunter safety course completion to obtain a replacement safety
certificate without having to retake the hunter safety course. There
has been a number of instances where a hunter has applied to another
state for a hunting license and one will not be issued without proof
that a hunter safety course certificate was issued. If the hunter has
lost the certificate, a current hunting license will not suffice for
proof of safety course. This bill would allow people who lost their
certificate to obtain a replacement without having to re-take the
course based on the presumption that the safety course was completed
due to their possession of a NYS hunting license. This bill is
limited in scope to those who acquired the Hunter Safety Course
Certificate prior to 1980 and allows a remedy for those who already
possess a hunting license, but who cannot produce a hunter safety
course certificate.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2011-12: S.6729/A.9628 Passed Senate/Referred to Environmental
Conservation

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Minimal.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect 180 days after it becomes law.

TATION DEMONSTRATING COMPLETION OF A HUNTER SAFETY COURSE AS REQUIRED TO

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 previ-
ously 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 produce 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 indi-
vidual'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:

Section 1 amends subdivision 4 of section 11-0713 of the environmental
conservation law to allow a person who holds a license or privilege
authorizing the holder to hunt, fish, or trap and who has lost or acci-
dentally destroyed documentation demonstrating completion of a New York
hunter safety course to apply for replacement education certificates for
a fee of one dollar to the issuing agent.

Section 2 amends subdivision 3 of section 11-0713 of the environmental
conservation law.

Section 3 states that this act shall take effect on the one hundred
eightieth day after it shall have become a law.

JUSTIFICATION:

The primary reason for this bill is to assist those sportsmen and women
who have been hunting accident-free since their original date of hunter
safety course completion to obtain a replacement safety certificate
without having to retake the hunter safety course. There have been a
number of instances where a hunter has applied to another state for a
hunting license and one will not be issued without proof that a hunter
safety course certificate was issued. If the hunter has lost the certif-
icate, a current hunting license will not suffice for proof of the safe-
ty course. This bill would allow people who lost their certificate to
obtain a replacement without having to retake the course based on the
presumption that the safety course was completed due to their possession
of a NYS hunting license. This bill is limited in scope to those who
acquired the Hunter Safety Course Certificate prior to 1980 and allows a

remedy for those who already possess a hunting license but who cannot
produce a hunter safety course certificate.

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Subdivision  4  of  section  11-0713 of the environmental
conservation law is amended by adding a  new  paragraph  d  to  read  as
follows:
  D. A PERSON WHO HOLDS A LICENSE OR PRIVILEGE AUTHORIZING THE HOLDER TO

TATION DEMONSTRATING COMPLETION OF A NEW YORK HUNTER  SAFETY  COURSE  AS
REQUIRED  PURSUANT  TO  SUBDIVISION  THREE OF THIS SECTION MAY APPLY FOR

  S  2.  Paragraph c of subdivision 3 of section 11-0713 of the environ-
mental conservation law, as amended by section 3 of part R of chapter 58

the giving of instruction and the making  of  certification.  No  charge
shall  be  made  for any certificate or instruction given to a person to
qualify him or her to obtain a  license  or  privilege  other  than  for
certain  instruction  and  materials  accredited  by  the  department to
provide preparation for final instruction and testing by agents  of  the
department  [or  for replacement education certificates for a commission
of one dollar to the issuing agent]. The department shall make available
to the public courses without charge which  do  not  require  additional
preparation  at  the  expense  of  students, and may also offer optional
courses which require  preparatory  instruction  which  may  be  at  the
expense  of  the  student. The department may make rules and regulations
which in its opinion effectuate better the purpose of this subdivision.
  S 3. This act shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after
it shall have become a law.
