Commission Agenda Item No. 6
Rule Adoption – Stamp Fee for Disabled Veterans
May 2001

I. Discussion: This item requests approval from the Commission to add the following stamps to the Disabled Veteran Hunting and Fishing License and waives associated stamp fees for the (1) Texas Waterfowl Stamp, (2) Turkey Stamp, (3) White-winged Stamp, (4) Archery Stamp, (5) Muzzleloader Stamp, (6) Saltwater Fishing Stamp, (7) Freshwater Trout Stamp. Currently, both hunting and fishing licenses are available free of charge, to qualifying veterans, however; they are currently charged a fee for stamps.

This rule is proposed under the Parks and Wildlife Code, Chapter 43, which authorizes the commission to exempt persons from stamp requirements of the chapter.

II. Recommendation: The staff recommends the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission adopt the following motion:

“The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission adopts the proposed Rule, Title 31, Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 53 (Finance), section 53.90 as published in the April 27, 2001 Texas Register with an effective date of August 15, 2001.”
