I. Abstract

    The Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act (16 U.S.C. 669 et
seq.) and the Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration Act (16 U.S.C. 777 
et seq., except 777e-1) provide authority for Federal assistance to the 
States for management and restoration of fish and wildlife. These Acts 
and our regulations in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 50 CFR 
80, subpart D, require that States, territories, and the District of 
Columbia annually certify their hunting and fishing license sales. 
States, territories, and the District of Columbia that receive grants 
under these Acts use FWS Forms 3-154a (Part I--Certification) and 3-
154b (Part II--Summary of Hunting and Sport Fishing Licenses Issued) to 
certify the number and amount of hunting and fishing license sales. We 
use the information collected to apportion and distribute funds 
according to the formula specified in each Act.<<<For more information and where  to comment>>>
