Final Regulatory Flexibility Analysis
No economic impacts are anticipated as a result of these rules. The department currently contracts with a vendor and provides automated licensing to the public through private retail outlets such as convenience stores, department stores, small sporting goods shops, as well as large retailers of outdoors-related merchandise. Licenses will also continue to be available at department service centers, and online. Following these rules, the same basic framework of license delivery would remain in place.
We anticipate improved delivery of services because more services will be available around the clock via the internet. These proposals will generally contribute to providing access to opportunities for hunting, fishing, trapping and other outdoor activities and maintenance of the economic activity generated by people who participate in those activities.
These rules do not impose new compliance or reporting requirements for small business. Vendors who choose to serve as department license outlets would continue to have compliance and reporting requirements and follow operational standards. Therefore, under s. 227.19 (3m) Stats. a final regulatory flexibility analysis is not required.
These rules do not modify the actual fees for any licenses, permits, registrations, or trail use stickers.
