Fiscal Notes

Estimated Two-year Net Impact to General Revenue Related Funds for HB 215, As Introduced: an impact of $0 through the biennium ending August 31, 2017.

The bill would make no appropriation but could provide the legal basis for an appropriation of funds to implement the provisions of the bill.

Bill Analysis

HB 215 would waive the fishing license fee for residents over the age of 65. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

This bill would allow the government to give preferential treatment to certain groups of people. For this reason, we oppose HB 215 because it would undermine the individual liberty of all other groups that are excluded from this waived fee for a fishing license.
