Commission Policy

Commission Policies exist to provide direction and leadership guidelines, to describe the desired outcome on broad issues by articulating the Commission’s 10,000 foot viewpoint to the Department of Wildlife.  While the results or consequences of policy leadership do take time and effort to be realized, the intent of policy-level guidance is to resolve a whole class of issues that would otherwise return again and again for Commission action. Contact the Director's Office Management Analyst 3 for more information.
