MEMORANDUM

Posted: April 7, 2017 09:08 AM
From: Representative David S. Hickernell
To: All House members
Subject: Free Fishing for Persons with a Severe Physical Disability (Former HB 346 - 2015-2016 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.

Previous Cosponsors: HICKERNELL, BAKER, CALTAGIRONE, CAUSER, CONKLIN, D. COSTA, DEASY, DeLUCA, EMRICK, FEE, FREEMAN, GOODMAN, A. HARRIS, MENTZER, MILLARD, MURT, PEIFER, PICKETT, RAPP, READSHAW, SAYLOR, SCHWEYER, ZIMMERMAN, and MOUL



Introduced as HB1276
