LANSING, Mich. — The Senate Outdoor Recreation and Tourism Committee will hold a hearing on Wednesday, March 2 on Senate Bill 635, which would help encourage out-of-state residents to hunt and fish in Michigan. The committee hearing will feature live remote video testimony from two Upper Peninsula locations.

The bill proposes reducing by half the non-resident hunting and fishing license fees for people who own land in Michigan but who live elsewhere. Additionally, former Michigan residents who meet certain criteria would receive the same non-resident discount.

State Sen. Tom Casperson, R-Escanaba; members of the Senate Outdoor Recreation and Tourism Committee; and the general public.
