Fiscal Detail and Notes
The bill removes the requirement that somebody be at least 10 years old to be eligible for a junior hunting license and allows those under 16 years old to obtain this license. This will increase General Fund revenue collected through the Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife (IF&W) by an estimated $27,875 annually beginning in fiscal year 2016-17. IF&W expects to increase Federal Expenditures Fund revenue by $25,445 annually for federal grants for the expected increase in licenses issued beginning in fiscal year 2016-17.
