STATEHOUSE (Feb. 25, 2019) – A bill authored by State Sen. Jeff Raatz (R-Richmond) that would help track hunting guide services in Indiana recently passed the Senate by a vote of 35 to 14.
Senate Bill 363 would require those who serve as hunting guides to obtain a license to provide related services as well as require a hunting guide to report the previous month’s daily record of harvest game.
“As a growing industry in our state, it is important for Indiana to keep track of the hunting guide services provided in our communities, which this bill would accomplish,” Raatz said. “If passed, I am eager to see the positive impact this legislation would have on the hunting industry in our state.”
Raatz authored this legislation in response to concerns brought forward by a constituent.
SB 363 will now move to the House of Representatives.
