Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the Fish and Wildlife Service's (FWS) new rule on late-season migratory bird hunting. GAO noted that: (1) the rule would establish the late-season frameworks from which states may select dates and other options available to them for the 1999-2000 migratory bird hunting season; (2) after receiving this information, FWS will publish the selections as the final regulations for the current hunting season; (3) the late seasons bag and possession limits rule prescribes hunting seasons, hours, areas, and daily bag limits and possession limits for specific game birds; and (4) FWS complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
