Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                     STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

                           RS 17725

The purpose of this legislation is to amend existing law
to revise terminology to provide for a two (2) pole permit and
to allow persons exempt from purchasing a fishing license to
purchase a two pole permit. This will allow children exempt
from licensing to fish with a two pole permit, similar to
provisions of 36-410(b) and (c) for steelhead trout and
anadromous salmon permits.

                         FISCAL NOTE

There will be no fiscal impact to the State. There will
be no fiscal effect to Fish and Game funds by revising the two
pole validation to become a two pole permit. Allowing
residents and non-residents, who are exempt from purchasing a
fishing license, to purchase a two pole permit is estimated to
increase sales of the two pole permit by no more than 5% of
the 2006 sales for a total increase to Fish and Game funds of
