  1  2 GUIDE LICENSES – RECIPROCITY – PENALTY.
  1  3    1.  A person shall not engage in or be employed for any
  1  4 compensation or reward for hunting guide or fishing guide
  1  5 activities in this state unless the person has obtained a
  1  6 hunting guide license, a fishing guide license, or a combined
  1  7 hunting and fishing guide license from the department.  The
  1  8 department shall define, by rule, the activities that
  1  9 constitute hunting guide or fishing guide activities for
  1 10 purposes of this section.
  1 11    2.  Upon application and payment of the hunting guide
  1 12 license fee, the fishing guide license fee, or the combined
  1 13 hunting and fishing guide license fee as provided in
  1 14 subsection 3, the department shall issue an applicable guide
  1 15 license to an applicant who is a resident of this state and at
  1 16 least eighteen years of age; who agrees to faithfully perform
  1 17 the duties and responsibilities of a licensed hunting guide, a
  1 18 licensed fishing guide, or both; and who agrees to observe and
  1 19 comply with the requirements of chapters 481A and 484A, and
  1 20 this chapter, and the rules of the department relating to
  1 21 hunting or fishing guides and the hunting of game or fishing
  1 22 in this state.  A hunting guide or fishing guide is
  1 23 responsible for informing hunting or fishing clients of all
  1 24 applicable hunting or fishing laws and rules.
  1 25    3.  The department shall establish, by rule, the annual fee
  1 26 for a hunting guide license, fishing guide license and a
  1 27 combined hunting and fishing guide license issued pursuant to
  1 28 this chapter.  In determining annual fees, the department
  1 29 shall consider the costs of issuing the licenses and
  1 30 administering and enforcing the provisions of this section.
  1 31    4.  a.  Reciprocal privileges for hunting or fishing guides
  1 32 from another state are contingent upon a grant of similar
  1 33 privileges by the other state to residents of this state.
  1 34    b.  The commission may negotiate fishing and hunting guide
  1 35 licensing reciprocity agreements with other states.
  2  1    c.  When another state confers upon hunting guide or
  2  2 fishing guide licensees of this state reciprocal rights,
  2  3 privileges, and immunities, a hunting guide or fishing guide
  2  4 license issued by that state entitles the licensee to all
  2  5 rights, privileges, and immunities in this state enjoyed by
  2  6 the holders of equivalent licenses issued by this state,
  2  7 subject to duties, responsibilities, and liabilities imposed
  2  8 on licensees in this state by the laws of this state.
  2  9    5.  Section 483A.26 shall apply to a nonresident who is not
  2 10 covered by a reciprocity agreement and who falsely claims
  2 11 residency in this state to obtain a hunting guide license, a
  2 12 fishing guide license, or a combined hunting and fishing guide
  2 13 license.
  2 14    6.  A violation of this section is a simple misdemeanor and
  2 15 is punishable as provided in section 483A.42.  
  2 16                           EXPLANATION
  2 17    This bill requires the licensing of persons who provide
  2 18 hunting guide services, fishing guide services, or both
  2 19 services.  The department of natural resources is directed to
  2 20 issue hunting guide licenses, fishing guide licenses, or
  2 21 combined licenses upon application and payment of an annual
  2 22 fee determined by rule of the commission to residents of this
  2 23 state who agree to faithfully perform the duties and
  2 24 responsibilities of a licensed hunting guide or licensed
  2 25 fishing guide, or both, and agree to observe and comply with
  2 26 the requirements of the hunting or fishing laws and rules of
  2 27 the department.  A hunting or fishing guide must be at least
  2 28 18 years of age to be licensed.
  2 29    Code section 483A.26 prohibits nonresidents from claiming
  2 30 residency in this state to obtain a resident license and
  2 31 provides that a license is void if used by a person other than
  2 32 the person to whom it was issued.
  2 33    The bill provides reciprocal hunting guide or fishing guide
  2 34 privileges for residents of other states that grant the same
  2 35 privileges to residents of this state.
  3  1    Violators of the new licensing provisions are guilty of a
  3  2 simple misdemeanor and subject to a minimum fine of $10 for
  3  3 each offense.
