Relating to a fishing license fee waiver for certain residents.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 559 would waive the fishing license fee for Texas residents who are at least 85 years old. Current law already allows TPWD to waive this fee for residents and nonresidents 65 years old older.
Texas Action opposes preferential tax, license, and fee structures that benefit a particular class of people at the expense of others. However, considering these preferences already exist for fishing license fees and this bill merely tinkers around the edges of those existing preferences, Texas Action remains neutral on HB 559.
