Fiscal Notes

Estimated Two-¬≠year Net Impact to General Revenue Related Funds for HB 3081, As Engrossed: an impact of $0 through the biennium ending August 31, 2023.

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 3081 would allow the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission to implement rules allowing for digital wildlife tags to be issued to the holder of a hunting license and allow for hunters using a digital tag to create a digital record at the time of the taking of an animal that includes information required by the department.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action supports HB 3081 on the principle of individual liberty. Allowing hunters to tag wildlife as conveniently as possible enhances the liberty of hunters to use modern means of tracking and reporting their game harvests.
