Governor Edward G. Rendell today signed House Bill 1109 into law.HB 1109 extends the prohibition on selling one-day fishing licenses from April 1 to March 15. Prior to this legislation, anglers could not buy one-day licenses between April 1 and April 30.

It's the intent of the new law, which takes effect immediately, to prevent people from buying the cheaper one-day license on the first day of the fishing season. It also allows for license sellers to recover the costs of implementing electronic selling systems by charging an additional fee of up to $1.
