H "A", Filing Number H-89, Sponsored by Shaw
Amend the bill in section 1 by striking out all of subsection 17 and inserting the following:
This amendment clarifies the reasons for which the Commissioner of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife may postpone or cancel an open hunting season. Unlike the bill, which authorized the commissioner to postpone the season if "necessary for wildlife conservation purposes," this amendment specifies that the commissioner may postpone the season if the commissioner has concerns regarding disease, weather conditions, reduction in population or other unforeseen factors that may prevent publicly derived management goals from being met.
