House of Representatives
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session


Posted: January 8, 2013 03:14 PM
From: Representative David S. Hickernell
To: All House members
Subject: Free Fishing for Persons with a Severe Physical Disability (Former House Bill 805, 2011-2012 Legislative Session)
I plan to reintroduce legislation to amend Title 30 (Fish and Boat Code) to exempt an individual with a severe physical disability from obtaining a fishing license.

Currently, persons who are totally blind are exempt from purchasing a fishing license and this legislation extends that courtesy to persons with a severe physical disability. I have drafted the language to ensure that only persons who are paraplegic or similarly disabled in the lower extremities will qualify for this exemption.

Keller, Killion, Kula, Longietti, Marshall, Millard, Miller, Moul, Pickett, Rapp, Readshaw, Rock, Saylor, Scavello, Stern, Sturla, Murt and Farry

Introduced as HB591
