Bill allowing donations on tax returns for fish and wildlife programs clears committee

TRENTON – The Assembly Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee unanimously released bill A4039, which would enable residents to make voluntary contributions on their gross income tax returns for fish and wildlife management and conservation programs.

Committee Chairman Nelson Albano said with recent state budgets having been in “dire straits” and funding for many programs cut, the bill will give taxpayers an opportunity to keep various environmental programs going.
