one more time to post for new york

According to the Fishermen's Conservation Association, there is now a bill in the New York legislature that would implement the saltwater license called for by Gov. David Paterson earlier in the year. Fortunately, the effective date of Oct. 1 leaves time for debate about the provisions.

Senate bill S13-0355 calls for the same $19 resident and $40 non-resident licenses, but stipulates that the funds will go into a saltwater account within the Conservation Fund and be used only for marine purposes. There are also provisions for short-term licenses (seven days at $12 a resident and $25 for a non-resident, or $5 for one day), but nothing is mentioned about group licenses for party and charter boats to cover their customers.

There is also a provision for reciprocity with neighboring states.
