Wildlife Commissions Discussing a Merger?

When state agencies start talking about merging, especially those involving wildlife and fisheries, folks tend to take notice.

A Pennsylvania Legislative Budget and Finance Committee has released a report about a merger between the state’s Fish and Boat Commission and Game Commission. The last formal discussions were about 11 years ago. Nothing is finalized or in the works.

“This certainly isn’t the first time that a merge has been studied, but nothing has happened up until this point,” Travis Lau, Press Secretary of the Pennsylvania Game Commission said in this report. “I am not sure if the talks regarding a merger have taken place, but I am sure in the upcoming weeks and months we will see what they will ultimately decide.”
