Hunt and fish license plate ceremony in Glenwood

Governor John Hickenlooper today signed the new “Hunt and Fish Colorado” license plate into law during a ceremony held in Glenwood Springs. The license plate was created by the Bull Moose Sportsmen’s Alliance and sponsored in the General Assembly by Representative Sal Pace (D-Pueblo) and Senator Jean White (R-Hayden).

Revenues from the sale of these plates will go to programs within Colorado Parks and Wildlife, aimed at increasing youth access to hunting and fishing opportunities. One half of the proceeds will go towards fish habitat and angling access. The other half will go towards the development of public shooting ranges.

“We are honored to work with Representative Pace and Senator White – and applaud Governor Hickenlooper’s support for a bipartisan bill that will increase opportunities available to Colorado’s sportsmen and women,” said Gaspar Perricone, Co-Director of the Bull Moose Sportsmen’s Alliance. “Colorado has a long and storied outdoor heritage and we are proud to display our passion so we can improve the future opportunities for the next generation of hunters and anglers.”

“Hunting and fishing in Colorado generates approximately two billion dollars annually and in order to keep this sector of our economy healthy, we need to continue to find ways to fund these vital programs,” said Representative Sal Pace. “This license plate helps provide those funds.

“These sporting license plates will give sportsmen and others an excellent opportunity to proudly display their passion for Colorado’s sporting history and also the chance to support the programs that help make hunting and fishing opportunities available to everyone,” said Senator Jean White.

The plates will have a $60 one-time fee, typical of most specialty license plates, as well as an annual renewable $25 fee.
