Wis. lawmakers plan bill to boost outdoor sports

Madison, Wis. (AP) – Republican legislators are planning to
introduce a bill designed to get more people hunting and
fishing.

The proposal’s main author, state Rep. Jim Steineke of Kaukauna,
says the measure would allow new license applicants to include
people as referrals on their applications, making those people
eligible for discounted licenses, create adult-only hunter
education courses and reduce license fees for first-time
applicants.

The plan also would authorize a half-credit for high school
students who take hunter or trapper education courses and create an
outdoor sports recruitment and retention council.

Steineke and a number of other Republicans plan to announce more
details at a news conference at the state Capitol on Wednesday
afternoon.
