Rep. Jeff Pyle (R-Armstrong) has filed amendments to Senate Bill 1166 (Stefano-R-Fayette) and Senate Bill 1168 (Eichelberger-R-Blair) to add unrelated language to reduce protection for endangered species during environmental permit reviews.
The bills are scheduled to be voted on Tuesday.
The language now in Senate Bill 1166 and Senate Bill 1168 would allow the Game and Fish and Boat Commission to set their own license fees.
The amendments: Senate Bill 1166-- A10257 and A10259 and to Senate Bill 1168-- A10260 and A10258-- are similar to legislation Rep. Pyle introduced three years ago as House Bill 1576, but has not been reintroduced since.
