Study: Merger Could Save Millions

A study released today says a merger of the state Game Commission with the Fish and Boat Commission could save Pennsylvania nearly $5 million a year.

The Legislative Budget and Finance Committee report says the two agencies could cut about 52 jobs. The study does say, however, that a change would mean additional costs in the short term such as the need for new uniforms, vehicle identification and a logo.

Pennsylvania is the only state that divides management of fish and wildlife resources into two agencies.

State Rep. Marty Causer called for the study on a possible merger.
