NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A3744
 
SPONSOR: Gunther (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to authorizing special access to hunting and fishing grounds on state land for handicapped individuals   PURPOSE: To authorize handicapped people access to hunting and fishing grounds on state land.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends the Environmental Conservation Law by adding a new section 11-0115 to allow handicapped individuals access for hunting and fishing grounds on state land. The commissioner will authorize special access for hunting and fishing grounds on state lands. This will apply to individuals who have been issued handicapped parking permits pursuant to section 1203-a of the vehicle and traffic law. Such rules and regu- lations are included, but not limited to allowing access to certain designated hunting and fishing grounds on state lands by ATV. Section 2. provides that this act shall take effect immediately.   JUSTIFICATION: Handicapped individuals have a difficult time physically in their efforts to reach their hunting destination. This bill would authorize special access for handicapped individuals and will provide these indi- viduals with the opportunity to utilize an ATV to enjoy hunting privi- leges. The commissioner will authorize special access for hunting and fishing grounds on state lands. This will apply to individuals who have been issued handicapped parking permits pursuant to section 1203-a of the vehicle and traffic law. Such rules and regulations are included, but not limited to allowing access to certain designated hunting and fishing grounds on state lands by ATV. Enhancing access to fishing and hunting opportunities for a diverse community of disabled hunters who value these outdoor activities will ultimately enhance the number of people active and participating sports- men.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2017-18: A319/S1467 Referred to Environmental Conservation 2015-16: A803/S2533 Referred to Environmental Conservation 2013-14: A1716/S1949 Referred to Environmental Conservation 2011-12: A9185/55230 Referred to Environmental Conservation   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
