Fiscal Detail and Notes
This bill allows, but does not require, the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry (ACF) to develop new marked hiking trails within the unorganized territory on which loaded firearms are permitted and under specific criteria discharged. Any additional costs to the ACF as a result of this change are anticipated to be minor and can be absorbed within existing budgeted resources. The ACF has indicated that adding additional marked hiking trails beyond those already in development would require additional funding.
