Fiscal Detail and Notes
This amendment removes the elimination of the minimum age requirement to obtain a junior hunting license that was included in the committee amendment and keeps the minimum age at 10 years old to obtain this license. This reverses the estimated $27,875 annual increase in General Fund revenue from allowing children younger than 10 to be eligible for a junior hunting license. The amendment also removes the estimated $25,445 annual increase in Federal Expenditures Fund revenue that the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife expected to receive from federal grants that are based on hunting licenses sold.
