Leg. Budget/Fin. Report

The latest Leg. Budget and Finance Comm. report is out, on the potential financial impact of additional Sunday Hunting in PA.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A legislative study estimates Pennsylvania could generate up to $804 million in economic activity if it permits hunting on Sundays.

The Legislative Budget and Finance Committee report released Wednesday says that's enough to support nearly 7,500 jobs and bring in almost $57 million in state and local taxes.

It says hunting is currently worth nearly $3 billion to the state's economy, with deer hunting accounting for about $1.7 billion.

The expenditures include travel, equipment, licenses and land purchases or rentals.

The report is an update of a similar study done six years ago.

You really don't believe those inflated figures do you?




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Note that it says "potential". Just in case they misfigured, they installed a backdoor.

They're called estimates for a reason.
