DNR Law Enforcement Section Files Legislative Rules for Review

6/20/08

The Law Enforcement Section of the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources has filed legislative rule changes with the Secretary of State's office, according to Col. David Murphy, Chief of the Division's Law Enforcement Section. The proposed rules will be open for review and written comment until 10 a.m. on July 19, 2008. The availability of the proposed rules will be advertised in the State Register. In addition, the proposed rules will be available for review at each DNR district office, the Elkins office and the Charleston office. Individuals interested in reviewing the proposed rules should contact the Law Enforcement Section staff at these offices.

Written comments may be submitted to David Murphy, Chief, Law Enforcement Section, Capitol Complex, Building 3, Room 837, Charleston,WV 25305.

58CSR50 DEER HUNTING RULE

A gun manufacturer has developed an electric-ignition muzzleloader which is not covered under the existing administrative rules. The proposed rule change would define how this muzzleloader can be carried in a motor vehicle.

58CSR25 BOATING RULE

The proposed rule would make the current legislative boating rules, Series 25, 6.4, consistent with West Virginia Code 20-7-18b (E) by stating no one can operate a motorboat "while having an alcohol concentration in his or her blood of eight hundredths of one percent or more, by weight." (The present rule states ten hundredths of one percent or more, by weight.)

The proposed rule would also make the current legislative boating rules, Series 25, 6.9, consistent with West Virginia Code 20-7-18d by changing the times of operating personal watercraft to "any time between the hours of sunset to sunrise." (The present rules states "any time between the hours of one-half (1/2) hour after sunset to one-half (1/2) hours before sunrise".)
