BILL NUMBER:S801A

TITLE OF BILL:

An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to allowing the use of rifles for deer hunting in the county of Chautauqua; and providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this legislation is to allow sportsmen to hunt deer and bear in Chautauqua County with rifles.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Item (i) of paragraph a of subdivision 2 of section 11-0907 of the environmental conservation law, as amended by section 11 of chapter 483 of the laws of 2010.

This change in law would sunset on December 30, 2012.

JUSTIFICATION:

In several areas of the State, sportsmen are allowed to hunt bear and deer with rifles and this change in law would allow the use of rifles in portions of Chautauqua County. Expanding the use of hunting with rifles in Chautauqua County may also help control the large deer population. This legislation would not allow the use of rifles north of Route 20 in Chautauqua County, which runs along the lake shore and is flat.

None to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
