MEMORANDUM

Posted: February 5, 2021 02:53 PM
From: Representative David S. Hickernell
To: All House members
Subject: Free Fishing for Persons with a Severe Physical Disability (Former HB 982 of 2019-20 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, PICKETT, RYAN, BERNSTINE, KULIK, CAUSER, McNEILL, STAATS, ZIMMERMAN, MILLARD, JAMES, WARREN, SAYLOR, McCLINTON, HEFFLEY, HILL-EVANS, MENTZER, MARKOSEK, MULLINS, MASSER, GILLEN, DeLUCA, CIRESI and WEBSTER
 



Introduced as HB1056
