AB104,1,2 1An Act to create 15.34 (2) (bg) and (br) of the statutes; relating to: membership

Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, the Natural Resources Board consists of seven members
nominated by the governor and with the advice and consent of the senate appointed
for six-year terms. Current law requires that at least three of the members be from
north, and at least three of the members be from south, of a line running east and
west through the southern limits of the city of Stevens Point.
This bill requires that, beginning in 2017, at least one member of the Natural
Resources Board have an agricultural background. The bill also requires that,
beginning in 2017, at least three members of the Natural Resources Board have held
a hunting, fishing, or trapping license in at least seven of the ten years before the year
of nomination. If an individual served on active duty in the military during the ten
years before nomination, the number of years in which the individual is required to
have held an annual hunting, fishing, or trapping license equals seven minus the
number of years of active duty.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
