MEMORANDUM

Posted: January 13, 2015 03:38 PM
From: Representative David S. Hickernell
To: All House members
Subject: Free Fishing for Persons with a Severe Physical Disability (Former HB 591 - 2013-2014 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.
