26 a licensed foster home or a children's residential care facility to fish
27 during the open season therefor, provided they are accompanied and super-
28 vised by the director, officer, or other employee of the facility where
29 the child resides.
30 (b) For any person to fish on a "free fishing day" as may be designated
31 by the commission.
32 (c) Institutional Inmates State Long-term Care Facility Residents. For
33 any inmate of the state hospital north, state hospital south, Idaho state
34 school and hospital, and state veterans homes resident of a state long term-
35 care facility to fish during open seasons, provided said inmate state long-
36 term care facility has a permit therefor from the director. The director is
37 authorized to issue such permits upon the request of the head of the respec-
38 tive institution state long-term care facility having custody of said inmate
39 resident upon a showing that the institution state long-term care facility
40 recommends the issuance of such permit and will assume full responsibility for

15 tional fishing permit by the director.
16 (g) Nothing contained herein shall be construed to prohibit citizens of
17 the United States who are residents of the state of Idaho from carrying arms
18 for the protection of life and property.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
Currently each individual resident of the state hospital north,
state hospital south, the Idaho state school and hospital and
the state veteran homes must obtain a permit in order to fish.
This will simplify the process by allowing the Department of
Fish and Game to issue a fishing permit to the facility.
There is not financial impact on revenues. The workload for the
facilities and department of fish and game should be reduced by
the decrease in the number of permits that must be obtained and
