2first-time annual fishing license for residents who are 16 or 17 years old or who
3are 65 years old or older.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill expands the fish and game approvals to which a reduced fee for
first-time approvals applies. Under current law, a reduced fee of $4.25 applies to
certain fish and game approvals if issued to a person who has not received that type
of approval, or been conferred the privileges of that type of approval, in any of the ten
years preceding the date of application. The bill adds to these approvals an annual
fishing license issued to a person who is 16 or 17 years old who is a resident of this
state or to a resident who is 65 years old or older.
For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
