Title: Multi-Year Hunting and Fishing License Certification for the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program 

This proposed rule will address how we count multi-year hunting and fishing licenses for States to report total license holders for their annual apportionments from the Service's Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration (WSFR) Trust Funds under the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration and Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration Acts. These funds go to support grants and cooperative agreements that fund projects that conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, their habitats, and the hunting, sport fishing, and recreational boating opportunities they provide. State fish and game agencies have repeatedly asked for action on this issue, so initiation of an action to change inadequate language in our current implementing regulations is not controversial.
