Republican Chair Of House Game & Fisheries Committee To Push For Hunter, Angler Fee Legislation

On January 3, Rep. Keith Gillespie (R-York), the returning Republican Chair of the House Game and Fisheries Committee, said he's ready to "take another swing" at moving legislation to allow the Game and Fish and Boat Commissions to set their own fees.
“I’m looking forward to getting back to work and supporting the best interests of the many hunters and anglers across the state,” said Rep. Gillespie. “As for the work to be done, we unfortunately have some important leftover legislation from the 2017-18 session that needs addressed as soon as possible.”
“The individual pieces of legislation that would empower both commissions each passed overwhelmingly in the Senate but lacked the votes in our committee,” Rep. Gillespie added. “I’m planning to take another swing at this because of my strong feeling that the PGC and PFBC both need and deserve the ability to set their own fees for the benefit of outdoor enthusiasts for whom they provide much-needed services.”
