Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Fish and Aquatic Life Code and the Wildlife Code. Provides that the respective fees for resident fishing, combination sportsmen, and hunting licenses are waived for current and retired State, municipal, and local law enforcement officers.

 Land Conveyance Appraisal Note (Dept. of Transportation)
 The Illinois Department of Transportation has determined that no Land Conveyance is required for this bill.

 Judicial Note (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 This legislation would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State.

 State Debt Impact Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 HB 3750 would not change the amount of authorization for any type of State-issued or State-supported bond, and, therefore, would not affect the level of State indebtedness.

 Housing Affordability Impact Note (Housing Development Authority)
 This bill will have no effect on the cost of constructing, purchasing, owning, or selling a single-family residence.

 Correctional Note (Dept of Corrections)
 HB 3750 has no fiscal or population impact on the Department of Corrections.

 Pension Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 HB 3750 will not impact any public pension fund or retirement system in Illinois.

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Natural Resources)
 Loss of both license sale revenue (hunting/fishing) and federal reimbursement funding totals approximately $96,095 annually. This estimate does not include the annual impact by retired officers. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources' Wildlife and Fisheries divisions DO NOT receive General Revenue Funds from the State of Illinois. Revenue for conservation work, aquatic habitat enhancement, fish stocking and research is generated by the sale of licenses, stamps, permits and other fees. Eroding the pool of funds available by making hunting and fishing privileges free to certain classes of hunters and anglers would continue to reduce the Department's capacity .

 Balanced Budget Note (Office of Management and Budget)
 In total, estimated revenue to the state would be reduced by more than $100,000 annually if House Bill 3750 were to become law due to less revenues in hunting and fishing license sales and federal reimbursement. According to the Department of Natural Resources, the loss of hunting license revenue for active police officers is estimated at $37,000 annually. This includes an estimated $12,000 directly from license revenue, plus $25,000 in federal apportionment funding. Additionally, the Department of Natural Resources estimates the loss of fishing license revenue for active police officers to be $59,095 annually. This includes an estimated $33,450 due to the loss in license revenues plus $25,645 in lost federal apportionment funds. Based on active police officers, the estimated loss in revenue would be $96,095. House Bill 3750 includes waivers for both active and retired officers, however at this time the fiscal impact can only be estimated for active law enforcement officers. As such, the fiscal impact of House Bill 3750 is likely to be greater than the above estimates due to the non-inclusion of retired law enforcement officers in the estimates. According to the Department of Natural Resources, conservation work, aquatic habitat enhancement, fish stocking, and research is funded by the sale of licenses, stamps, permits and other fees. Reducing the pool of funds available by making hunting and fishing privileges free to certain classes of hunters and anglers would reduce the capacity of the Department of Natural Resources to fund these duties and if continued could require reductions in service or general funds to support these functions.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This legislation does not create a State mandate.

 Home Rule Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This legislation does not pre-empt home rule authority.
