SENATE BILL NO. 1414
BY RESOURCES AND ENVIRONMENT COMMITTEE
1 AN ACT
2 RELATING TO FISH AND GAME; AMENDING SECTION 36-412, IDAHO CODE, TO INCREASE
3 HUNTER EDUCATION FEES.
4 Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
5 SECTION 1. That Section 36-412, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby
6 amended to read as follows:
7 36-412. EDUCATION PROGRAMS -- INSTRUCTOR QUALIFICATIONS -- FEE. (a) The
8 fish and game commission shall prescribe and administer education programs in
9 hunting and archery. Such programs shall provide instruction in the safe
10 handling of lawful hunting equipment. The programs shall also include instruc-
11 tion on wildlife and natural resource conservation, good conduct and respect
12 for the rights and property of others, and survival in the outdoors. The com-
13 mission may enter into agreements with public or private agencies and individ-
14 uals in carrying out the provisions of this subsection.
15 (b) The department of fish and game shall recruit competent volunteer
16 instructors. The department shall provide training for the instructors in the
17 safe handling of legal hunting equipment, conservation of wildlife and natural
18 resources, good conduct and respect for the rights and property of others,
19 outdoor survival, and other appropriate subjects for training instructors.
20 Instructors shall be issued certificates and shall on a voluntary basis, give
21 instruction in education programs as established by the department of fish and
22 game, to all eligible applicants.
23 (c) The commission shall establish fees for each program not to exceed
24 three eight dollars ($ 3 8
25 .00) for persons who are seventeen (17) years and under and not to
26 exceed five eight dollars ($ 5 8
27 .00) for persons age eighteen (18) years and older, to be assessed each
28 individual obtaining instruction in hunter education for reimbursement for
29 furnished materials. All students successfully completing the course of
30 instruction shall be issued a certificate of completion in hunter safety and
31 good hunting conduct.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The purpose of this legislation is to amend Section 36-412 to change the
fees for attending a hunter safety course to $8 to reimburse the
Department of Fish and Game for the cost of furnished materials.
Currently, the course cost is below the actual cost of the materials.
Approximately 10,000 students take hunter education per year. The new
fee structure would result in about $50,000 additionally per year to
reimburse the Department of Fish and Game for the educational materials.
