Memo

BILL NUMBER:S4222

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 366 of the laws of 2011 amending the environmental conservation law relating to youth pheasant hunting days on Long Island, in relation to the effectiveness of such chapter

Purpose of Bill:

The bill would extend the authority of the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to fix annually by regulation the open seasons and bag limits for pheasants on Long Island for those who hold a junior license.

Summary of provisions:

Section 1 of the bill would amend section 3 of Chapter 366 of the Laws of 2011 to extend until December 31, 2015 the authority provided to DEC under Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) § 11-0903(2)(c-1) to hold a youth hunt pursuant to regulations which establish open season and bag limits for pheasants on Long Island.

Section 2 of the bill provides that the bill would take effect immediately.

Existing law:

ECL § 11-0903(2)(c-1) grants DEC regulatory authority, until December 31, 2013, to annually fix by regulation the open season and bag limits for pheasants on Long Island for junior license holders.

Prior Legislative history:

ECL § 11-0903 was amended to provide DEC with such authority by Chapter 366 of the Laws of 2011.

Statement in support:

DEC has provided junior hunters (ages 12-15 years old) the opportunity to hunt pheasants for six consecutive years in several hunting zones within the State. In 2011, DEC was provided with additional authority to establish a youth pheasant hunt on Long Island and has established several successful and popular youth pheasant hunting opportunities since that time. The bill would extend such authority for an additional two years beyond December 31, 2013.

Budget implications: None.

Local Impact: None.

Effective Date: The bill Would take effect immediately.
