BILL NUMBER:S983 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to waiving hunting and fishing license fees for volunteer firefighters and volunteer ambulance workers PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To waive hunting and fishing license fees for volunteer firefighters and volunteer ambulance workers. JUSTIFICATION: This bill would waive the fee for a big and small game hunting license and a fishing license for volunteer firemen, as defined in subdivision one of section three of the firefighters' benefit law and volunteer ambulance workers as defined in subdivision one of section three of the volunteer ambulance workers' benefit law. Volunteer firefighters and volunteer ambulance workers contribute their time without any compensation and provide a vital service for their communities. For their dedicated service they should receive a free small and big game hunting license and a free fishing license. This is a small gesture of appreciation for those who risk their lives for the safety of their neighbors.
