AB676,1,3 1An Act to create 29.014 (5) of the statutes; relating to: requiring the repeal of
2hunting, trapping, and fishing administrative rules in conjunction with
3promulgation of new rules.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill provides that, for each new rule that the Department of Natural
Resources promulgates relating to hunting, fishing, or trapping, DNR must repeal
three existing rules relating to hunting, fishing, or trapping.
Current law requires DNR to promulgate rules to establish and maintain open
and closed seasons for fish and game and to establish any bag limits, size limits, rest
days, and other conditions governing the taking of fish and game that will conserve
the fish and game supply and ensure continued opportunities for fishing, hunting,
and trapping.
For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
