Is the Pennsylvania Game Commission and the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission going to merge together, all under the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources?
Jim Slinsky thinks this is probably a bad idea.
Not surprisingly, the PA Game Commission is not in favor of any merger.
Would it surprise you to read that the PA Fish & Boat Commission didn’t really respond to the proposed merger, but reframed the question to some bureaucratic double-speak.
To some, having three different agencies compete for precious outdoors enthusiasts’ money smacks of lunacy. Let see, the game deputies busy time is the fall/winter months, and the fish & boat officers are really busy in the spring/summer. I wonder whether merging the two might not save some precious tax dollars?
