Subject: Reduced Fee Hunting Licenses for Nonresident Disabled Veterans

It is my intention to introduce legislation amending Title 34 (Game) allowing for the extension of the reduced fee for hunting and furtaking licenses to non-resident disabled veterans and former prisoners of war.

Under current law, a Pennsylvania veteran who is 100% disabled or has lost the use of one or more limbs due to service in the military, is eligible for a free hunting and furtaking license. Prisoners of War and those veterans who possess a disability rating between 60% and 99% due to an injury incurred during service are eligible for a hunting or furtaking license at the cost of one dollar.

Non-profit organizations, which offer hunting opportunities to wounded veterans, have incurred higher costs when obtaining licenses for non-resident disabled veterans.

I would appreciate if you could join me in cosponsoring this very important piece of legislation that would greatly benefit our disabled veterans who fought for our country.
