248,118 Section 118. 29.085 of the statutes is renumbered 29.041 and amended to read:
29.041 Department to regulate hunting and fishing in interstate waters. The department may regulate hunting and fishing on and in all interstate boundary waters, and outlying waters specified in s. 29.01 (9) and (11). Any act of the department in so regulating the hunting and fishing on and in such interstate boundary waters and outlying waters shall be valid, all other provisions of the statutes notwithstanding, provided such powers shall be exercised pursuant to and in accordance with ss. 23.09 (2) and 29.174.
Note: The 2nd sentence of current s. 29.085 is superfluous. The DNR is authorized to regulate hunting and fishing on interstate boundary waters and outlying waters and the statement in the 2nd sentence that those regulations are valid serves no purpose. There are no "other provisions" anywhere in the statutes that create doubt or negate the validity of the authority granted in the first sentence. The statement regarding exercising the authority pursuant to ss. 23.09 (2) and 29.174 adds nothing, because the DNR is obligated to comply with those statutes.
