|Subject:||Permit Exemptions for Senior Lifetime License Holders|
|In the near future, I intend to introduce legislation to amend Title 34 with regard to special licenses and permits, providing for permit exemptions for senior lifetime license holders.
As you may know, the PA Game Commission recently passed a regulation requiring pheasant hunters to obtain a $25 permit to hunt pheasants. It was brought to my attention by a senior resident in my district who had obtained a senior lifetime resident hunting license that he would now be required to pay additional fees to hunt pheasant, which had previously been included in the lifetime resident hunting license.
This legislation will allow any hunter who had purchased a lifetime resident hunting license prior to July 1, 2017 to continue hunting pheasant, or any other species that may require a permit, previously included under their current license without incurring the additional fee, as they had expected upon purchasing their license.
I hope that you will join me in co-sponsoring this legislation.
Introduced as HB1764
