Rep. Gary Howell, R-North Branch; audio on youth fishing license legislation

Categories: Audio,Howell Audio

Rep. Howell talks about House passage Wednesday of his HB 5002, part of a two-bill, bipartisan package that would allow fishers under the age of 17 to obtain their own fishing license for $2.  The legislation reestablishes a program unintentionally eliminated in 2013.  Individuals under the age of 17 do not need a license to fish in Michigan, but Rep. Howell says there is value in allowing a young person to purchase a permit bearing their own name.
