|Subject:||Authorizing the Sale of Antlerless Deer Licenses Through the Pennsylvania Automated Licensing System|
|Currently, hunters apply for antlerless deer licenses by sending an application to a county treasurer or similar official. Unfortunately, counties do not always have the financial resources or staff to process license applications in a timely manner.
In light of the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s recent updates to the Pennsylvania Automated Licensing System, we now have the ability to ensure that hunters have a more convenient and efficient way of applying for and receiving hunting licenses. I believe that we should transfer the antlerless deer license application process from counties to the PGC through the Pennsylvania Automated Licensing System. This will make the process of obtaining much more convenient for all Pennsylvanians.
I hope you will join me in supporting this important legislation.
This is a reintroduction of former House Bill 275 of the 2017-2018 Legislative Session.
Introduced as HB300
