The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do enact as follows:
Prefatory note: This bill was prepared for and contains the recommendations of the joint legislative council's special committee on recodification of fish and game laws. As part of its charge, the special committee was directed by the joint legislative council to recodify ch. 29 of the statutes. Chapter 29 contains most of the statutes related to wildlife, nongame species, hunting, trapping and fishing, various commercial activities involving wildlife and other subjects of regulation by the department of natural resources (DNR), such as the protection of endangered and threatened species, wild rice and wild ginseng. In reviewing the history of fish and game regulation, the special committee made the following observations about current ch. 29:
1. The DNR's predecessor agency, the conservation commission, was first given authority to adopt orders governing hunting, fishing and trapping in 1933. Prior to that time, the statutes provided all regulatory detail necessary to administer the various fish and game programs. Much of this detail is more appropriate for rules, rather than statutes, but the statutes have not been systematically amended to remove details and thus allow the DNR to address by rule the specific requirements of each subject of regulation.
2. Chapter 29 is quite long (55 pages in the 1995-96 statutes) and has insufficient internal organization. In many cases, similar subjects are not grouped together.
3. As is typical of statutes, regulatory programs accumulate incrementally. New regulatory programs are not made consistent with existing programs, even when the subjects are similar. The current statutes related to the several types of bird and game farms, for example, use significantly different statutory language to accomplish the same purpose in each of the programs.
4. Statutory drafting style has evolved into the use of "plain English" whenever possible. Chapter 29 is full of archaic phrases and circumlocutions, such as s. 29.57, which describes certain lands, and subsequently refers to them as "the said lands".
5. Although ch. 29 is fairly comprehensive, there are occasional gaps in the DNR's regulatory authority.
In discussing and responding to its charge, the special committee determined to recodify ch. 29 by reorganizing it into subchapters and modernizing the statutory language to the extent possible. In addition, the special committee agreed to make minor substantive changes that appear to be consistent with the original intent of the legislature or that are consistent with current policies of the legislature and the DNR in fish and game programs. The special committee is not proposing major substantive changes to any provisions of ch. 29 in this bill.
Where minor substantive changes are made, and where further information is warranted, the special committee has included explanatory Notes. The Notes also provide information about the treatment of provisions that are repealed by this bill and recreated elsewhere in ch. 29. Information about the renumbering of ch. 29, showing the connection between old and new statute numbers, can be found in the Bulletin of Proceedings of the Wisconsin Legislature and in the 1997 edition of the Laws of Wisconsin, after the bill is enacted.
The bill divides ch. 29 into 13 subchapters and reorganizes the material incorporated into each of the newly created subchapters as necessary. The new subchapter headings are as follows:
Subchapter I: Definitions
Subchapter II: General Fish and Game Regulation
Subchapter III: Hunting, Trapping and Fishing Approvals
Subchapter IV: Hunting and Trapping Regulation
Subchapter V: Fishing Regulation
Subchapter VI: Commercial Activities
Subchapter VII: Approval Fees and Effective Periods
Subchapter VIII: Education and Training
Subchapter IX: Miscellaneous Provisions
Subchapter X: Fish and Game Propagation and Stocking
Subchapter XI: Captive Animals
Subchapter XII: Wildlife Damage
Subchapter XIII: Enforcement
For the convenience of the reader, a table of contents listing all section numbers of reorganized ch. 29 is included in this Prefatory note. Also, a finding aid is included at the end of the bill, which matches the current statute numbers with the new statute numbers assigned by this bill.
