OFFICIALLY WITHDRAWS CHANGES TO WILDLIFE RULES
(04/143) TRENTON -- Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) Commissioner Bradley M. Campbell today

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
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.
