California Introduces $5 Game Warden Stamp
By Dave Hurteau
From The Modesto Bee:
California residents can now support wildlife protection by purchasing a special "Game Warden Stamp" from the Department of Fish and Game.
The $5 stamps were authorized by a new state law, AB 1442, signed into law by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in October.
California's game wardens protect wildlife and public resources and enforce hunting and fishing regulations. But warden numbers have been depleted by attrition. . . .
Money from the [non-mandatory] stamps will pay for training and equipment for game wardens.
Would you pay $5 to support wardens in your state?
