Press Release from Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey, R-Blountville; April 6, 2010:
NASHVILLE — Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey is an owner of a lifetime sportsman license in Tennessee and encourages all other sportsmen to follow suit. Lt. Gov. Ramsey visited with Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency staff members as they were present at Legislative Plaza recently to promote 2010-11 hunting and fishing licenses to members of the House and Senate.
“The TWRA performs a great service by offering the lifetime license,” said Lt. Gov. Ramsey. “I am proud to own one and I recommend it to all my friends who hunt and fish.”
License sales provide the primary funding for the TWRA, which does not receive any funding from the state’s general fund (i.e. state sales tax). The TWRA relies on license sales as its primary source for funding for its management programs. Licenses are available at any Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) regional office, licensing agent, and on the TWRA Web site, www.tnwildlife.org. The licenses are valid through February 2011.
