The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) announces that state hunters and anglers can now provide public comments and feedback on this year’s proposed changes to hunting rules and fishing rules and regulations.

After completing an internal review, the FWC worked with other agencies and stakeholders in identifying and recommending these proposed changes, which may need to be made to Florida’s hunting and fishing regulations.

The last day to submit comments or suggestions on these changes is September 24, 2010, by 5 p.m. (EDT).

After September 24, 2010, FWC staff will summarize all comments received on each rule change proposal and present those summaries to its seven-member Commission at its November 17-18, 2010, meeting in Naples.

Any draft rule changes approved at this Commission meeting will be published in the Florida Administrative Weekly and considered for final adoption at the February FWC Commission meeting in Apalachicola. If approved, most rule changes would become effective July 1, 2011.
