An Act To Allow Hunters Whose Religion Prohibits Wearing Hunter Orange Clothing To Instead Wear Red
Sec. 1. 12 MRSA §11203, sub-§1-A is enacted to read:
Sec. 2. Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife to amend rules. The Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife shall amend Rule Chapter 4: Hunting and Trapping to clarify that a person who has a religious opposition to the wearing of hunter orange clothing may substitute articles of red clothing for the articles of hunter orange clothing required by current law. Rules amended pursuant to this section are routine technical rules as defined in the Maine Revised Statutes, Title 5, chapter 375, subchapter 2-A.
This bill allows a hunter whose religion prohibits the wearing of hunter orange to instead wear red. It also directs the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife to amend its rules to reflect this exemption.
