Bill summary

Senate committee substitute makes the following changes to the 5th edition.

Modifies the proposed changes to GS 113-291.6, regarding restrictions for steel-jaw, leghold, or conibear traps, now requiring the traps to bear a weather-resistant permanent tag attached legibly giving the trapper's name and address or trapper identification number (previously, required both the trapper's name and address and trapper identification number). Adds a new requirement for the Wildlife Resources Commission to disclose the identity of a trapper to a landowner upon the landowner's request if the trapper places a trap on the property of the landowner that gives the trapper's trapper identification number instead of the trapper's name and address.

Further amends GS 113-276, enacting new subsection (o) to permit an eligible member of a volunteer fire department for five consecutive fiscal years, including the prior fiscal year, to be issued any adult resident lifetime license issuable under Article 21 for 50% of the applicable license fee amount. Defines eligible member to mean an individual appearing on the certified roster of eligible firefighters submitted to the NC State Firefighters' Association under specified state law. Effective October 1, 2019.
