Subject: Reduced Hunting and Fishing Licenses for Health Care Workers
As health care workers answer the call to duty during these challenging times, we all join in deep appreciation for all their selfless service.  Every day the medical community inspires us.

With that admiration in mind, I will soon introduce legislation that will create a new $1 fishing license and a new $1 hunting license available to health care workers. These licenses will be on sale for one year.

By charging $1, the Game Commission and the Fish and Boat Commission will qualify for matching federal funds based on each license sold.  The reserve accounts of both commissions are substantial and able to afford these temporary reduced fee licenses.  

This legislation is a way to thank health care workers and promote safe and healthy outdoor activities.

Please join me in co sponsoring these important bills.
