Relates to the definition of "immediate family".
TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to the definition of "immediate family"
PURPOSE: This legislation modified the definition of immediate family for the purposes of commercial fishing license transfers.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Subdivision 6 of section 13-0328 of the Environmental Conservation Law is amended to define "immediate family" to mean a spouse, sibling, parent, child, grandparent, grandchild and all persons who are related by blood marriage or adoption and live in the house of the license holder.
Section 13-1328 allows DEC to transfer certain commercial fishing licenses to immediate family members in cases where a license holder dies prior to transferring his or her license. Currently, the definition of immediate family means that licenses may only be transferred to immediate family members who live in the house of the license holder. This legislation would allow family members, such as children and parents, to be eligible to receive a transferred license even though they do not live in the same household.
LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.
FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.
EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect 180 days after it shall have become law.
