SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION 63

(By Senators Hamilton, Stover, Grady, Phillips, Rucker, Smith, Sypolt, Woodrum, Jeffries, Stollings, and Woelfel)

[Originating in the Committee on Natural Resources; reported on April 5, 2021]

 

Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance study the proposal of permitting members of certain groups to hunt, fish, and/or trap, within the state of West Virginia without obtaining a license or waiving the fees associated with such a license.

Whereas, All individuals who desire to obtain a license to hunt, fish, or trap within the state of West Virginia shall obtain a license to do so and shall pay the prescribed rate for such license; and

Whereas, There have been bills proposed in recent sessions of the West Virginia Legislature to permit members of certain groups to hunt, fish, or trap within the state of West Virginia without obtaining a license and/or waiving the fees incident to obtaining such licenses; and

Whereas, The specific groups of people that have been named in these proposed bills are veterans who were honorably discharged from the armed services of the United States or municipal volunteer firefighters to hunt, fish, or trap within this state without obtaining a license or permitting members of said groups to obtain such licenses without paying the prescribed fee; and

Whereas, There may be a significant number of people who desire to hunt, fish, or trap in West Virginia that are also members of the groups specifically named by this proposed legislation; and

Whereas, The enactment of such proposed legislation would likely have an impact on the revenue of the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources and/or other governmental entities; therefore, be it

Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study the proposal of permitting members of certain groups to hunt, fish, and/or trap, within the state of West Virginia without obtaining a license or waiving the fees associated with such a license; and, be it

Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2022, on its findings, conclusions, and recommendations, together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations; and, be it

Further Resolved, That the expenses necessary to conduct this study, prepare the report, and draft necessary legislation be paid from legislative appropriations to the Joint Committee on Government and Finance.
