Wyo. Game & Fish Pushing For License Fee Hike

U.S. Fish and Wildlife

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The cost of hunting and fishing licenses could increase by at least 21.5 percent under a proposal from state officials.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department officials say the hikes are needed to make up for a revenue shortfall of between $8 and $10 million a year.

The Associated Press reported that a legislative committee is set to meet next week to decide whether to introduce a bill seeking to increase the fees.

License fees were last increased in 2008. Since then, Game and Fish Department spokesman Eric Keszler said costs have gone up because of inflation and new wildlife management responsibilities.
