DEP OFFICIALLY WITHDRAWS CHANGES TO WILDLIFE RULES

(04/143) TRENTON -- Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Commissioner Bradley M. Campbell today announced that he has officially withdrawn a November 15 wildlife rule proposal that would have set standards, clarifying under what circumstances DEP would withhold hunting licenses.

As a result of the recent New Jersey Supreme Court decision, DEP will instead focus on working with the New Jersey Fish and Game Council to develop a comprehensive wildlife management policy.

Commissioner Campbell signed the notice to withdraw the rule on December 7 and the notice will appear in the New Jersey Register on January 3, 2005.

The January 4 public hearing previously scheduled to accept public comments on the withdrawn rule has been cancelled.

To access the rule withdrawal, go to www.nj.gov/dep/rules/notices.html.
