Emrick, Hahn Support Reduced Rate Fishing, Hunting Licenses for Vets
6/10/2014
HARRISBURG – Members of the House Game and Fisheries Committee, including Reps. Joe Emrick (R-Mt. Bethel) and Marcia Hahn (R-Nazareth), moved two bills Monday that would allow disabled veterans who enjoy the outdoors to purchase reduced rate licenses. Both bills may now be taken up on the House floor.

“It’s simply one more way to give back and say thank you to the men and women who served our country,” Emrick said.

Senate Bill 1090 would permit any military veteran who is considered to be 60 percent to 99 percent disabled to purchase a general hunting license for $1 plus issuing agent fees. Senate Bill 1102 would make a general fishing license available for purchase by those veterans at the same price.

“Anyone applying for a discounted license must provide proof of veteran status and origin of the disability, as well as discharge papers and a disability certificate from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs,” Hahn added. “We each have monthly outreach events in our district and can assist veterans with the necessary paperwork.”

Representatives from the American Legion hold appointments the first Monday of every month in Emrick’s office, which is located in the Nazareth Borough office building at 134 South Main St.; and the second Wednesday of every month in Hahn’s office, which is located at 354 West Moorestown Road, Nazareth.

To schedule an appointment, please call either Emrick’s office at (570) 897-0401 or Hahn’s office at (610) 746-2100.
