Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)-  On November 13 2014, newly re-elected Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) issued an executive order cutting the price of a lifetime sportsman’s license for children and young adults “in order to encourage Florida’s families to enjoy the bountiful hunting and fishing opportunities in Florida.”

Scott won re-election on November 4 by defeating pro-gun control challenger Charlie Crist (D).

The executive order also makes clear Scott’s desire to “introduce Florida’s youth to outdoor activities that instill conservation values.” 

The order lowers the price for a lifetime sportsman’s license for those aged five to twenty-one. The Santa Rosa Gazette reports that the license currently “costs up to $1,000,” but Scott’s order reduces the price to $500 for those purchasing them between November 24 2014 and the end of the year.
