147th General Assembly
House Bill # 98 w/SA 1

Primary Sponsor: Paradee Additional Sponsor(s):    Sen. Venables Reps. Atkins Dukes Gray Heffernan Kenton Peterman Wilson Sens. Hocker Lopez
CoSponsors: { NONE...}
Introduced on : 04/30/2013
Synopsis of Orginal Bill:
(without Amendments)
This bill amends existing statute by classifying gray foxes, skunks and weasels as game animals to allow the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control to establish seasons and regulations for these species. The change is needed to enable the management of these species as is currently allowed for similar species classified as game animals and to legalize the incidental take of these species by licensed trappers pursuing other regulated game animal species. The clarification that the bullfrog is the only frog game animal species is made to reflect current regulated harvest practice and to formally protect other frog species. The reference to Bryant fox squirrel is removed as antiquated nomenclature for the Eastern fox squirrel (Sciurus niger niger) which was not historically and is not currently present in Delaware.

Current Status: Senate Passed   On   04/30/2014 04:39:20 PM
