Just wondering... If I buy outdoor equipment out of state, does that keep Pittman-Robertson money out of California's hands or just sales tax money or what?
“/The rules for distributing and spending Pittman-Robertson funds are carefully written. The Department of the Interior distributes the funds according to a set formula among hunter-education programs, projects that require cooperation across multiple states, and state projects. Each state’s allocation of funds is based on geographic size and the number of licensed hunters in the state for that year. Prior to receiving funds, states must submit to the interior secretary plans detailing how they will spend the money. Once a plan has been approved, the state must be prepared to pay the full cost up front. The states are later reimbursed for up to 75 percent of that cost through the fund; the remaining 25 percent is usually paid through hunting-license sales.”
These are 2018 numbers per state. https://www.doi.gov/pressreleases/secretary-zinke-announces-more-that-11-billion-sportsmen-conservationJust wondering... If I buy outdoor equipment out of state, does that keep Pittman-Robertson money out of California's hands or just sales tax money or what?
