SB 301 - Registration of Outfitters and Guides

  Senator Carolyn McGinn, R-Sedgwick, requested introduction of S 301, which would require outfitters and guides to register with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism.  

  While the sponsor has concerns with those involved with the industry -- e.g., how do landowners insure responsible parties are involved in the business and how can they be found in instances of abuse, she acknowledges she is open to a discussion on the bill.  It is also her intend, should something like this pass, that the filing fee would be a one time fee and not annual, unless the person moved.

  On another matter, Rep, Ken Corbet is working on a bill to allow for the extension of the CSA season from March 31 to April 30.  We should see a bill draft in the next week.
