Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

    STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS07386 This legislation will clarify that persons who purchase 
    the two-day nonresident hunting license must also purchase the appropriate permit 
    or tag to hunt turkey, upland game or waterfowl. There has been some dispute over 
    the intent of the existing statutory language.
