Default RE: Wa. House considering Game Law Change

Interesting, but we are talking about Washington here and that would only bring in $150,000.00 if they were all residents x 2 for elk would be 300K. This state is greedier than that.
Here is a little amendment on the senate side of this bill. Does anyone know where senator Hargrove is from?? I didn't see where he is from Kittitas or Chelan counties

5225-S AMS HARG S2452.3
SSB 5225 - S AMD137
By Senator Hargrove

On page 3, after line 7, insert the following:

"NEW SECTION. Sec. 2 (1) The department of fish and wildlife shall contract with Central Washington University to conduct research to determine the causes of elk damage to agricultural lands.
(2) In addition to the fees for big game licenses set forth in RCW 77.32.450, the department of fish and wildlife shall impose a surcharge of one dollar for each license authorizing the hunting of elk. Revenues from the elk hunting license surcharge must be deposited in the state wildlife fund.
(3) This section expires July 1, 2007.

NEW SECTION. Sec. 3 The sum of one hundred ninety-six thousand dollars, or as much thereof as may be necessary, is appropriated for the biennium ending June 30, 2007, from the state wildlife fund to the department of fish and wildlife for the purposes of section 2 of this act."

SSB 5225 - S AMD137
By Senator Hargrove

On page 1, line 1 of the title, after "hunting;" strike the remainder of the title and insert "amending RCW 77.32.450; creating a new section; making an appropriation; and providing an expiration date."

Talked to a guy with WDFW they are considering a multi season option but would make it special draw only I.E. 1000 tags for deer or less and you could only hunt that one species.
