H.3408 – Free Hunting/Fishing Licenses for Police, Firefighters, State Guard Members

H.3408 would allow police officers, volunteer firefighters, or state guard members who are South Carolina residents to obtain three-year fishing or combination license (a combination license covers big game and migratory waterfowl hunting, hunting on wildlife management area lands, and fishing) for free.

It is unclear why public servants should not pay for privileges that all other South Carolinians must pay for. Good government in a free society mandates that everyone be treated equally under the law rather than extending special privileges to certain classes of government officials and workers.
